really liked it
bookshelves: book-club, recent

This book was lovely. It is written very simply, which seems to make it more real. It deals with issues between black and white South Africa, but does this by seeing things from different angles and allows the reader to decide what is the best way towards resolution. It is desolate and yet hopeful.

The characters are wonderful.
