  • Loved it.....

    As debut novels go, "Attend" written by West Camel, is up there with the best. Original, thought provoking, spellbinding and compelling, this story of grief, mortality, friendship and dreams, threaded with a hint of magic realism and mystery, you can't help but feel in awe at this beautifully weaved story. It is difficult to categorise into one genre as it literally covers a bit of everything from magic realism to even romance. Very character driven but intelligent and atmospheric too. Blurb - When Sam falls in love with South London thug Derek, and Anne’s best friend Kathleen takes her own life, they discover they are linked not just by a world of drugs and revenge, they also share the friendship of the uncanny and enigmatic Deborah. Seamstress, sailor, story-teller and self-proclaimed centenarian immortal, Deborah slowly reveals to Anne and Sam her improbable, fantastical life, the mysterious world that lies beneath their feet and, ultimately, the solution to their crises. I very much enjoyed reading this addictive story and straight away I immediately felt I was down by the mighty Thames in Deptford, such was the atmospheric descriptions detailed by the author. I was particularly enthralled by Deborah's mysterious chapters and I was hooked following her emotional story from beginning to end. I also had a soft spot for Sam, a gay man who moved to Deptford in his search for men and glittering nightlife. With an eye catching, well designed cover, that represents the three threads to the story - Sam, Anne and Deborah - and the needlework the story is based on, this polishes off an exceptionally well thought out, unique story that is both captivating and mesmerising. I'd happily recommend "Attend' and this exciting, fresh new author and hope to read more by him in the future. 4 stars
