Vicky wanted to know what I thought of this book as it is one of her favourites by one of her favourite authors.
It took me a while to 'get into' this book, in fact it was nearer to the end than the beginning as I found it difficult to identify with, and really believe in, the characters. The writing was excellent and informative with deep analysis of different human emotions and situations.
At the end of the story was an extract from her very first novel which I started to read and which I 'got into' straight away. So, Vicky, I'm afraid it was only 3/5 for this story but I'm sure it will be more for her first one.
