This was a quiet and slightly brutal story. I can‘t say I really liked any of the characters, but they were all drawn in a way that was very saturated and appealingly lifelike.
Someone said that this is a quiet book and I love that description. Just add the sound of the sea. Beautifully written, I‘m so disappointed it didn‘t make the Booker short list, it deserved to be on it. I rushed home each night to have a chance to read this stunning novel.
