This one has been on my bookshelf for a while. I am happy to finally get to it. This is amazing as a debut novel, very creative in the story telling and the characters are interesting. The writing is very stylised and beautiful. The book alternates between two narrations which only start to connect more than one third (maybe half way) into the story. The two story lines develop separately and interestingly enough to keep me reading on and the book gets better when the story lines converge. There are many parts in the book that are insightful and profound. A very interesting take on watching and being watched, on acting a role and being. I like Stanley's part of the book more than the girls. The girls' part can be frustrating because of the intentional ambiguity when the author switches from reality to a play in the book or to the characters' fantasies. If you cannot stand ambiguity in a book, you will not like the book. Otherwise, this is a good read. It is a book to be read slowly and savoured.

I was coming down the main tree avenue after a long walk and found it hanging from the cage round a young tree. I haven't been active in Bookcrossing for ages and it was brilliant to find a wild release. The printed sealable baggie is a great invention. I shall have to settle down over christmas and have a good read before releasing it onwards. Great to see it's ocean hopping travels and hope it has plenty more miles left in it yet.
