I loved this book.
I don’t know how cool it is to admit it but what the hell, i’ll say it anyway “I am a big fan of the Richard & Judy Book Club“. Over the years I have read quite a few of the suggested books and I think i’ve pretty much enjoyed them all.
The novel opens with a few ‘Oh gosh’ moments, setting the scene for the book which tells the story of a brother and sister and the relationships throughout their lives. I loved the Cornish imagery but must confess I did feel a bit disappointed when the September 11th tragedy cropped up, ergh but I thought it was interesting to read why author Sarah Winman decided to include it, so fair enough. (I must admit I do love those bits those Q&A bits from the author in the back).
All in all a great comical read with lots of things to think about, which is what I like in a book. 4/5
What’s next. Wait and see :)
