    1. This may be the first book I've reviewed where I've felt the need for a trigger warning. There is scene later in the book, relatively short but very intense which tested my gag reflect and probably anyone else's.Now that's out of the way the book! Wow, holy crap and other such epithets.I've never read something with quite such a good blend between dramatic plot and 'real life' stories, a perfect blend between literary and genre greatness. The settings are very Kiwi and it was fun reading a book [...]



    2. This was the 3rd book we read back when we had a book discussion group at the School for English and Applied Linguistics (S.E.A.L.). We called ourselves the Reading Seals, which I coined (and was very pleased with myself for doing so).One of us had recommended this book, based on its winning the Book Award. I liked the way all the different people ended up being connected, and I liked the unexpected ending.


    3. A great New Zealand fiction book that's been sitting on my shelves for a year waiting for the right moment. An interesting tale with lots of different characters who seem to have nothing to do with each other. I loved the little Kiwi comments, from life on Waiheke Island (which I recently visited) to why Kiwis leave their shoes at the door to rugby details.


    4. How have I only just been introduced to this amazing author? A brilliantly written, tightly woven jigsaw of a novel, set in Sydney and Auckland. Great read! I'm hunting out more of Stephanie Johnson's novels.


    5. Very intricate story; creative, and credible. No detail is unimportant, and everything comes back around to explain or impact something else later. A story about growth and forgiveness (of yourself and others).




    6. Intricate plot, interesting characters, familiar landscapes and thoroughly enjoyable. Proud of NZ fiction and looking forward to reading more
