Arghghgh, so I finished this excellent book (How the light gets in) (by the way aren’t I doing well at blogging again!). I absolutely loved it and the style was so like M.J. Hyland’s other books.
You just never really know what’s going to happen next with the main character, it was the same as ‘This is How’, they seem to go from calm and in control to doing something totally unpredictable without any warning – and it’s usually a self destructive act.
The main character Louise in this book captures being young and bored and awkward so perfectly, but with such a dark edge to her character. I’ll now have to go and Google what might have happened after the last page!
