I quite agree - fantastic read!

Dear Cornflower & Verity I don't doubt you either BUT the essential information is to my mind missing! Why? I followed your link to Adele Geras but couldn't find her review - I'm doing something stupid here, perhaps you can hold my hand and point me to it?


I've linked to Adele's website to credit her for the original recommendation, but she told me about the book privately (though she may well have written about it, too, of course).


This was the one book from the Longlist I knew I had to read, bought it immediately and it still sits waiting for me. Must read it soon...looking forward to reading your thoughts on it!

Dark Puss

Thank you for the clarification. I'm sure your forthcoming review will answer my question - unless Verity beats you to it!


I agree, I throughly enjoyed this one and am surprised more people haven't read it.


I read this last year and found it very hard to put down. However when I left a comment on her blog to say how much I had enjoyed it, she deleted it and left me feeling really rather foolish!


Surely the deletion was a mistake, Liz?


I would like to think so but then I am just your average reader and I don't have an English degree (don't have one of any kind as you didn't need to go to uni to go into journalism in the 70's which was what I always wanted to do) so maybe it wasn't erudite enough!
Still think that she's a good writer and Hearts and Minds is very good indeed.
