Awful. Just awful. Unreadable. Gave up.

Had heard such good things about his young adult fiction so I picked up this adult crime thriller. Honestly, so badly written. Who thinks people talk like that.

Firstly he goes to a house which might as well have a banner hung outside saying “Paedo” and then a family which reinforces every cliched stereotype you can think of. Then he has the character who survived this abuse just blurt shit out about it down at the pub. Coz yeah, that’s what people do. If your dad had raped you since you were a little girl, you would talk about it down the pub, to the folk you work who are not even your friends. Aye, that’s how folk act.

Honestly so stupid and so badly written. Set my teeth on edge it did. Gave up.
