The White Woman on the Green Bicycle

The White Woman on the Green Bicycle by Monique Roffey

In books read on April 6, 2012

The only thing I could really mark this down from five stars for was that I found it hard to get going with in the beginning, I picked it up several times to read the first few pages and put it down again. Once I read more than the first 20 pages I was hooked.

I really like the "backwards in time" way of telling a story. The first half of the book is the third-person viewpoint story of Sabine and George Harwood, a white seventy-something couple living in Trinidad in 2006. The book then goes back to fill in the backstory from Sabine's point of view from 1956 to 1970. As a recovering mystery addict I really do appreciate not wondering what is going to happen all the time and being able to concentrate on the characters and the plotlines.

I did feel there were threads of the present day story that weren't explored enough - the Harwood's son and daughter were only sketchily portrayed but were interesting characters and I wanted to know more about them and how they ended up as they were. But I guess that could have been a whole other book really.

Overall I really enjoyed the journey, the characters and the location.

This was a library book.

The stamp is nothing to do with re-entry. It's to remind you why you feel so woozy on a Sunday morning.
