The conflict is drawn out over materialistic issues, but there are other underlying problems which go to the heart of what it means to be part of a family which, in one way or another. has cast one aside.
Prejudice, misconceptions and the human condition in all forms feature in this contemporary drama revolving around a group of people who attend the subsequent funeral at the British South Coast.
Meet flamboyant gardener Charles, loner Simon, selfless psychic Elaine, narcissistic body-builder Edgar, Martha and her version of unconditional love and many others as they try to deal with the event and its aftermath.
This is one of those books where I had a hard time to write a review. Not because I didn’t like it, because I did I actually loved this book, but because I’m not sure what to say other than “go buy a copy!”
It follows Charles and Tony. Charles who has a mental condition and Tony his brother who has to deal with him.
The book is beautiful written and shows the up and downs of his illness. Some was pretty heartbreaking and some things were uplifting.
The characters were well written and easy to follow but also very detailed and easy to relate to.
The story flows very nice and before I knew it I was done, I had a hard time putting the book down.
Overall I really loved this book and the subject about mental illness; it had a good pace to it and was easy to understand.
Like I said I have a hard time putting my review into words and can only say go buy a copy if this book .
I rate it at 4 ½★
