An emotional and heavy read, Chris Cleave's "Incendiary" looks at the aftermath of a terrorist attack and how grief, guilt and loss can affect a person. I didn't love it as much as "Little Bee" but it's still 4 stars from me.
If I had seen a description of this book that described it as gothic, historial fiction, I'd never have picked it up. Learning it was paranormal would have put me off too, yet Waters' style is something different and I read every word with care. Some parts didn't sit quite right with me, dragging a little at times, but this was certainly an enjoyable read - it's 4 stars for "Affinity".
A great character study but for such a long book I was looking for more of a story. Well written and enjoyable but too lengthy and a little lacking. It's 3 stars for "On Beauty."
