For this month we’ve chosen The Aftermath by Rhidian Brook. Thank you very much Carol Hurley for your recommendation. And for those of us who love to watch the film too, it’s out now at the cinema.
Here are the reviews:
‘Superb. This masterly novel wrings every drop of feeling out of a gripping human situation.’ (Mail on Sunday, Novel of the Week)
‘Excellent, original, masterly. A captivating tale not only of love among the ruins but also of treachery and vengeance.’ (Literary Review)
‘Profoundly moving, beautifully written.’ (Independent)
‘Superb. Conjuring surprise after surprise.’ (Guardian)
‘An extraordinary read.’ (Daily Mail)
‘Terrific. Suspicion, resentment and misunderstanding haunt this city. Richly atmospheric’. (Sunday Telegraph)
We hope you enjoy it!
