THE HOLE IN THE WALL

A good short read

By Paul Samael, member

Feb 5, 2014: A good short read, cleverly told from 5 different perspectives but with a dark undertone to it, this reminded me in some respects of Ian McEwan’s "The Cement Garden."

I would have to respectfully disagree with the reviewer who found it hard to follow. Yes, it does require your concentration and you do find yourself re-reading bits to check you "got everything" – but for me, the spareness of the writing was a strength not a weakness. Anyway, it’s free, so (apart from your time) what have you got to lose from giving it a try?
