Such an odd book. Almost threw it away after reading the blurb on the back but stuck with it as it was for a book club. Then nearly threw it away again after the first couple of chapters. The writing changes as the characters grow which was off putting at first as I really didn’t enjoy much the child POV’s. But as they age so does the writing which is quite impressive.
Almost two distinct books, child/adolescent and adult timelines. The latter part of the book does seem rushed and some storylines seem to go nowhere. Even now I’m not quite sure what to make of it all.
