Journal Entry 1 by AngelChild from Otham, Kent United Kingdom on Saturday, May 22, 2004

6 out of 10

I find reveiwing books quite difficult! And this book does'nt help at all..... i don't know whether i enjoyed it or not. At first i thought the details below (which were pinched from Amazon) referred to another book! I was expecting a "they all lived happily ever after" ending, but that did'nt happen (to my relief). The basic story is of a guy who finds a baby on the floor in a gents toilet and how that event turns 5 peoples lives upside down. Worth a read, but not (IMO) un-putdownable.

Five distinctly different lives are unexpectedly caught up in a frightening net of affection and fear, maternal and romantic love. The novel shows how families pull together, form themselves anew, and fly apart at the seams.

Criminals is a book of deep intrigues, full of suspense and of suprising moral revelation. Its Hardyesque subject can be said to be how lives are haunted, reconfigured, and even ruined by one small misstep. Conducted in tone perfect prose, it is the balanced, incisive, mature work of a fully accomplished novelist.

Thanks Caffcaff for sending me this book as a surprise. My TBR pile is not at its highest so I hope I won't make you wait too much for a new journal entry.

Have a nice weekend up there in Medway =)

It wasn't until some days after I received this book that I realised I have read another by the same author already, 'Eva moves the furniture' (wich didn't enjoyed much ). So I'm glad to say that 'Criminals' held my interest from start to finish and it must mean something since I'm in a period of starting a book, reading a few pages and putting it aside...
Thanks Caffcaff, I hope it will keep on travelling soon...

Both complex and simple, I loved this book.... the consequences of actions, decisions and how irrevocably they influence a chain of events. Occasional weaknesses in the story line failed to allow me to give a higher score.... but I'd definitely recommend it!

I know just the person for this!
