I can't say I enjoyed this half as much as I would have liked to. Which is because I love Ali Smith's way of writing like no one else does and though I did enjoy it a lot I would have liked to have enjoyed it more. I think I was just expecting too much of it really. The copy that I read had the modern day story first, and I liked the historical one better. It feels like a book that ought to want a second closer reading, but from previous Smith books I know I'll enjoy it better at full tilt. Can't win that one really!
This was a hardback. This was borrowed.
