    "Interesting strands of narrative"

    Some interesting characters and ideas but I was very frustrated by the ending which seemed to just finish sans conclusion for some of the main characters. Worth reading but nothing to rave about.

    "Good listen"

    Very enjoyable book well read and evocative of the time it portrayed. The issue of sexual consent was thoughtfully tackled.
