Disturbing stock

Leonie Jackson, of Waterstones Walsall, has this to say about Little Monsters:

I really enjoyed this book although it is slightly disturbing, particularly the relationship between the protagonist and her ‘uncle Joey’. The main story is set during the Second World War and the present day runs alongside this narrative. It explores issues of abandonment and the feeling of not belonging through the main character, Carol’s, own past as well as her work with refugees in present day Italy.
What you would expect to be the main thrust of the novel, the fact that Carol’s father killed her mother, is only lightly touched upon, which is a shame as I was hoping for this to be explored in more detail. Still, if you loved Atonement this is of similar stock.


Similar stock to Atonement? Hmm.
