Its a very slow burner this book tp start. Hard to get into but take the time because its worth it. wonderful book with beautiful themes running through. It will pull every emotion out of you but leave you feeling joy.
If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?
I can be reasonably sentimental when the situation calls for it, but the characters drove me mad with their self-indulgent antics. This is definitely for those of a very forgiving temperament
What could Patricia Scanlan have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
It's hard to say what the author could have done to make me enjoy it - and as others seem to like it, I don't see why she'd bother!
How did the narrator detract from the book?
The narrator sounded like a different generation from the characters portrayed and loaded so much of her own interpretation onto the text that it distracted me from the story. Another book where I'm left wondering if I'd have enjoyed it more with someone who'd read it straight,
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Anger and disappointment, certainly, but quite a lot of nausea too. I needed to listen to something completely different when I'd finished it, so thank goodness I found Tasmina Perry's Deep Blue Sea.
