Book Reviews

I am currently doing some freelance book review work for The List’s literary editor Kirsty Logan. Below is a taster of my reviews, and you can find the full reviews here.

Audrey Niffenegger’s Raven Girl

“Niffenegger’s stories have such charm and sweet melancholy, and her illustrations are so wonderful, that you are drawn into her mysterious world. Raven Girl is no different. It tells the story of a postman and a raven who fall in love and have a child who is born human but has a raven’s voice. She longs to be fully raven, and it’s here that this fable takes a modern twist through means more medical than magical.”

Matt Hill’s The Folded Man

“Part science-fiction, part horror, Matt Hill’s debut depicts a war-torn near-future Britain poisoned by nationalism and racism. Using current anxieties over riots, terrorism and the recession as a springboard for clever satire, Hill makes weighty topics accessible through a Palahniukian minimalist staccato style and the odd charm of anti-hero, Brian Meredith.”
