(The only reason I took so long to read this book is that I was reading a couple others at the same time ….. and the baseball season started!)
I loved this book. The cover shouted ‘B-movie’ and ‘Sixties’ so that drew me to it straight away.
I would say that initially I struggled to keep up with the number of characters being introduced, but that could also be because as I mentioned above, I was reading another couple of books at the same time. Whatever, the storyline and characters soon settle down and the plot develops.
What I love about this book is that it is a ‘light’ fun read, never really straying too far from that B-movie feel, but at the same time it is spine-tingly dark.
Sarah Potter has written this book in such a manner as to make the reader (well, me at least) at various points feel as if they themselves are on some sort of weird, psychedelic, hallucinogenic trip.
The (at times) earthy language and actions of the characters define the period and situation to a tee.
Yeah – most definitely worth a read if you like something that little bit ‘different.’ In a good way.
