D, by Michel Faber
Reviewed by Lilia - Berkelouw Paddington
I really enjoyed this book with it’s whimsical and adventurous qualities. It borrows from a variety of book tropes, characters finding themselves through adventure, experiencing feelings of abandonment, a hero type figure that propels the story onwards... and yet Faber twists them and makes them different, so that you feel like you are reading something fresh and new.
There were wonderful phrases by Faber throughout the book that just resonated with me. Points of insightful observation that just makes the world around you that little bit clearer.
All in all, excellent!
