Publisher's Summary

Insomnia, exhaustion, recurring nightmares. Stephen Sharkey is suffering the after effects of his career as a war reporter, most recently in Afghanistan, where Ben Frobisher, war photographer and friend, has been shot dead on assignment. Hanging up his flak jacket and turning his back on the everyday reality of war, Stephen moves into a quiet and peaceful cottage in the north of England. It seems the perfect environment in which to write his book on the representations of war, one that will be based largely on Ben Frobisher's work. But Stephen's supposed isolation offers no protection from other people's suffering or the shattering effects of human brutality.

Engaging

This was my first experience of Pat Barker and I will be returning for more. Beautifully written and read. Captivating story.

Disappointing

Well that certainly didn’t blow my mind. I usually really enjoy Pat Barker books but I spent most of this one just waiting for something, anything to happen. None of the characters were likeable really and the dynamic between Steven and Justine seemed highly implausible, what 19 year old speaks like that?! Underwhelming 😐
