  • An Absolute Masterpiece!

    I thoroughly enjoyed The Truants, an engrossing début of mystery and intrigue. The book was narrated by Jess, looking back with hindsight over about six years or thereabouts to when she was an eighteen-year-old first-year student at university. Studying English, she falls heavily under the influence of Lorna, an enigmatic and charismatic female lecturer and also of a wealthy, drug-dependent fellow student, Georgie and her nonconformist older boyfriend. Kate Weinberg has a very appealing style of writing and the characters she created were very believable. giving me a great sense of apprehensiveness and foreboding. Jess’s voice was excellently done and I found The Truants very readable, with a death, other divulgences and revelations making this book very gripping. In this tale of love, desire, betrayal, lies and growing up, the plot moved along a very comfortable rate and Kate Weinberg wrapped everything up neatly, leaving no loose ends which was rather satisfying. Literary but not ostentatiously so, this was a pleasure to read and even if the plot had been less stimulating I would have devoured these pages with equal gusto and enthusiasm. The Truants is an extremely impressive début and I’ll certainly be looking out for Kate Weinberg’s next book. I received a complimentary digital copy of this novel, at my own request, from Bloomsbury Publishing via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion.

    Thanks for your feedback!
