Customer Reviews

The tension mounts, the plot more engaging as the multi narration challenges with a variety of opinions and reactions.A novel to make the reader consider 'society' and 'community', particularly the nebulous 'community spirit' so often called upon when evaluating aspects of life.The characters are vivid,having insistent voices throughout making the exploration of community experiences and attitudes very thought provoking.
