Just finished the novel Martyn Pig by Kevin Brooks. What an astonishingly intense book. I got so wrapped up in the plot that I forgot the timeline of the book. Everything only happens in a few days, but you feel like you’ve been reading about events that happened over weeks because of the characters strong ability to observe. Martyn’s observations go far beyond anything I’ve ever even thought of, yet seem so obvious when I read them, as if they’ve always been there, simmering at the back of my head. I love that. It makes you see life in a different perspective. I’m almost sad to give it back to the library.
