  • The Children Act

    Not an easy book to read. It has a serious subject and complex characters. The subject of Jehovas Witness people and blood transfusions is not a new one but the relationship? between the judge and the young Jehovas Witness member is different and makes foe an interesting novel with a lot for the reader to ponder. Recommended.

  • Brilliant, a real treat

    Another great book by Ian McEwan. Tightly and beautifully written, he uses words so well to weave an intricate tale in half the pages of other authors. Sheer heaven - beautifully crafted I couldn't put it down.

  • Wisdom and passion.

    Superbly written, not a word wasted. The atmosphere of the judiciary and it's attendant happenings brilliantly brought to life.

  • Thought-provoking, complex read

    Complex read about human frailty and resilience, faith and faithlessness, and the many ways we hurt ourselves and one another. Above it all, the Law sits, terrible and monumental by itself, but in the hands of puny, imperfect humans, at times rendered impotent, cruel, even "an ass". A reminder that those with the greatest power have the greatest responsibility, and that they too have human failings.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • More than legal words

    Absorbing in its depiction of the Solomon-like decisions made by judges against the background of life's routine.
