Book Review

'The Thirteenth Tale'
I'm writing this as part of my 'Spring Reading Challenge.'This is a debut novel from Dianne Setterfield.
A gothic novel which concentrates on the relationship of twins. In this book the lives of 2 sets of twins are entwined. It is a sad book at times with mental illness being portrayed throughout the storyline.I felt drawn into the storyand although there were 2 characters telling their own tales, it was easy to follow.Once into the book I couldn't put it down. The conclusion was good, and all loose endings finished off. The message I took from this novel is that all human life is precious and deserves to be nurtured.
I will be on the outlook for the author's works again as she certainly can tell a good story. Give it a try.

During the week beginning 3rd May weekly geeks put up a scheme for subsequent reviews so here is another review fo 'The Thirteenth Tale',
