I loved this book. Louise Beech is fast becoming one of my favourite - drop everything to read her latest - writers. She is a natural born story-teller with an elegance about her writing that never fails to move me.

Brilliant! Loved this book. It was well-written, had a hugely entertaining central character and genuinely gave me goosebumps. Should come with a warning that says - should only be read during the hours of daylight!

“An image of the library flowered in his mind. Shelves upon shelves of unread books. Bound papers and the scent of vanilla and burnt almond. Realms beyond count that he had yet to witness. The real world held at a distance by imaginings that were untarnished by fact.”

“I should learn to listen. Allow the words to settle in that padded room between denial and acceptance. But it would be easier to place one foot on the low wall of a high bridge, spread my arms crucifix-wide, lean forward and will flight into the span of my arms.”
Michael J. Malone, House of Spines

Michael J. Malone, House of Spines
