On Canaan's Side

On Canaans Side by Sebastian Barry

In books read on August 21, 2011

I liked this but I didn't enjoy it nearly as much as I enjoyed The Secret Scripture. It was well written from a sentence and paragraph point of view but didn't really hang together as a book for me. The plot seemed to stumble from one thing to another and never quite came together. I'd have preferred the book without the 'twist' at the end which just seemed silly. All the same I'd be surprised if it's not on the Booker Prize shortlist, but I wouldn't back it to win myself.

This was a kindle eBook.
