I loved this book. I've been reading a lot of unexpectedly good literary stuff lately, but this...whoa. I swear, I could feel exactly what Katherine was feeling, and I didn't want to keep reading, because I felt very frustrated but I couldn't! Don't you just hate when that happens? I don't.
I really liked that the narrative changed from present to past to longer past. It really gave me a complete view of the story, but without giving everything over at once - that's one of the causes of my frustration, by the way.
it was very well written, I really liked Robbie and Mick and Philippa and Katherine's parents and I really hated Alice. With all my guts. Isn't that a magnificent show of characterization?
