Compelling novel

29 12 2009

I just finished reading We need to talk about Kevin, by Lionel Shriver. In a word, “Wow!”  Words can’t describe what a powerful book this is.

If you haven’t already read it, get yourself to your local public library or bookstore and do so.

I believe it’s being made into a movie. Unless done sensitively, the movie might just fit into the ‘watcher’ role that Kevin eloquently says gives ‘the public the excitement and scandal that they secretly crave’.
