Review:

What a bizarre and fascinating book this is. I don't think I've ever read anything like it. 

It was long and nervous. Sexy and hyper. It had me gripped and anxious, and thoroughly entertained. 

 

The plot is outstanding, and to be fair the work that has gone into this book is beyond spectacular. Not only do we get one marvellous tale, we get eight more mini tales to take us deeper into the characters and their lives before and after the accident. It is extremely descriptive, which enables you to be in the grit of things, to connect completely with what's going on and with whom it's going on with.

 

I have to say I did struggle a bit at first. The character build up at the beginning is long, but totally necessary. If like me you're easily distracted stick with it because your prize is when you finish the book and think, fuck what the hell just happened?

 

4.5/5
