    eBook sharkmotorcyclehelmets.co.uk ð The Land of Decoration ePUB Ú The Land Epub / land ebok, decoration ebok, The Land book, The Land of Decoration PDF/EPUBReason for Reading Very intriguing plot captured my interestThis is a tough book to review I loved parts of it and disliked other parts of it Mainly I adored the main character 10yo Judith in whose voice the narrative is written She is naive and not always a reliable narrator but we are given events from her point of view as she sees them happen I read the book very quickly over two days and had a hard time putting the book down Parts of it were just lovely other parts I heartily disagreed with As a Christian I don't feel the author is making a grand statement on

    eBook sharkmotorcyclehelmets.co.uk ð The Land of Decoration ePUB Ú The Land Epub / land ebok, decoration ebok, The Land book, The Land of Decoration PDF/EPUBThe Land of Decoration is a first novel told in the voice of a young girl who has been brought up as a member of a religious sect Grace McCleen is a young writer who was herself brought up in a similar environment Of course most authors draw deeply on personal life experiences as they write not surprising since writing about events and circumstances you know is likely to be easier and realistic However sometimes the parallels between events and a novel and the author’s own life seem particularly close – Anthony Powell’s Dance to the Music of Time sequence being a good example – and perhaps that is also the case here Certainly the setting of the novel is completely convincing even if the events are at least partly imaginedThere have been a numb
