Review originally posted on A Keyboard and an Open Mind 11 May 2018This was a weird book I think there were some interesting ideas in there but to be honest I found it both slow and not very well fleshed out Now that I write that the two things seem a bit contradictory but somehow that was my experienceThe plot was intriguing but I think it could have done with a bit fleshing out I guess one could argue that the focus was on the characters I don t think the characters were uite strong enough to carry the book on their ownThe character dynamics were interesting and realistic but not enough to adeuately make for a character driven story Some of the character development was there but some actions felt a bit forced SEE WHAT THIS CHARACTER WAS DRIVEN TO DO kind of thingThere was also the dialogue The young characters all learn Patwa or Jamaican Creole in order to communicate with each other It took me out of the story every time I had to say a line out loud to work out what it was or consult the glossary at the front of the book With so much of the dialogue written this way it was distractingThe twist towards the end made sense in some ways but not in others The bigger reveal made sense in fact I had suspected but the intricacies of it seemed like an awful lot of effort to go to for perhaps not much rewardThis is the second book by Gillian Rubinstein that I ve read this year the first was Across the Nightingale Floor published under the penname Lian Hearn and I m beginning to think that her writing maybe just isn t for meThis review forms part of my 2018 Australian Women Writers Challenge Click here for information Buried Mountain Secrets just isn t for meThis review forms part of my 2018 Australian Women Writers Challenge Click here for information
