Atmospheric read

  • Book: Halfway
  • Location: Wales
  • Author: Beverley Jones

Review Author: sel2006



A fairly quick read but engrossing. Each of the voices we hear is from a flawed and/or tortured character. In fact, none of the main characters were appealing to me.

The use of different voices to narrate the story was a very useful device in keeping the reader guessing about the role each would play in the final denouement. The weather also played a key role in maintaining the suspense.

It is a well written book with enough twists and turns to keep the reader turning the pages
