This morning I picked up my copies of ‘Small Island’ by Andrea Levy, to give away to people for World Book Night. So watch out everyone I know!
I chose this book to give away as I read it a couple of years ago and just like Jasper Gerard’s quote above ‘soon you will be enchanted’, I was. It is one of those novels where you find yourself reading late at night when you want to go to sleep but can not stop turning pages. The characters become people you feel you knew once in your life, despite being generations apart, and have a vested interest in their fate.
For a synopsis take a look at World Book Night’s page on ‘Small Island’, where you can also see more titles by Andrea Levy.
