Lisa Jewell Casts Another Dazzling Spell
💛 Another intricately woven, thought provoking yarn from Lisa Jewell, who creates characters that surprise at every snaking turn.
❤️️ Incels are a major theme in the story, a subject that Jewell explores carefully, without stereotyping.
💜 In fact, Jewell allows reader to explore, only posing questions not answers. Questions about justice and prejudice. For example, the role of the press in reporting crimes under investigation. Is it fair for he media to reveal identities before guilt is proven? And questions about judging people by the small glimpses of them we happen to see.
💚 I loved the allusions to London, to places I have visited. Jewell described them perfectly.
Trigger warning for difficult subjects such as sexual abuse. It's hard to read in parts, but sensitively managed.
