This is a fantastic novel from an author whose works range all over the field of writing genres. Told from the point of view of a fascinating African immigrant, the character study is a work of a great literary talent. It is one of those books that I, and likely others, can say it was hard to put it down. Highly recommended.
Gripping. Read it in one night. Just had to know what happened.
Fascinating read. I imagine it created quite a stir in UK when published as the 'crime' is rooted in some of the least desirable aspects of some immigrant family values. It was also interesting how the family looked askance at the help being offered by the white neighbours and social services.
Shows us what happens when vulnerable people are pushed to the edge. I found myself rooting for the perpetrator in this one. I liked it better than her other thicker books.
5 stars!!!!!!!!!! Awesome book !
Walter's books are always dark and twisty. This one is no exception. I was worried because the book is so slim, but it packs a wallop just as her bigger books do.
Very Interesting Read... Muna treated horribly.. Exacting revenge,on a truly messed up family... And always playing the role of a truly slow minded little girl...
If you like a story about revenge, which I certainly do, you'll enjoy this very well told tale of a young girl stolen from an orphanage, abused and treated as a slave, and how she turns the tables. Very satisfying.
A bit too dark for my tastes. Did not finish the book.
