A bit of a fizzer really - the plot is turgid, particularly in the last two chapters where improbability reaches an all-time high, and the British characters are in the main, pretty unattractive. The basic premise- that dreadful things can happen to immigrants- is feasible and worth thinking about.

Although the story reads like a typical refugee literature both protagonist have fairly genuine and engaging voices which is particularly interesting for a male writing from two female points of view of different ages. Some of the imaginary is incredible and Chris Cleave is due apt credit for fine craft of a metaphor. The last two chapters are heartwarming, however unlikely. All and I all I enjoyed the read and it has peaked my interested in the topic of asylum seekers.
