From the blurb:

Review by Isabel Allende:

'One of the best books of the year. Poetic, heartbreaking, surprising. Matilda is a young girl in Bougainville, a tropical island where the horror of civil war lurks. Mr Watts, the only white person, is the self-appointed teacher of the tiny school where the only textbook is Dickens' Great Expectations. An extraordinary book.'

Didn't think much of it. Passing on to my girlfriend.

I didn't like it. Perhaps this is partly because I know very little about that area of the world (New Zealand, Australia and the surround island countries, sorry if that's not the right term for them!) and so was confused by the chronology and the circumstances generally. But aside from that, the plot was bizarre and the ending also quite odd, and the last few chapters I found hard to link together.

Will pass it on soon.

Thank you Bjorg, for Mr Pip and for the sweet note! I'm looking forward to reading it, also because of the different reviews this copy received :D.

And apologies for not journaling the book until now, it's been sitting on my desk looking at me accusingly for the past week or so...

Thanks!

Oops, finished reading Mister Pip some time ago, but forgot to journal it. I was impressed by the story, even though some bits were very harsh. Thanks again Bjorg! Will try and find another reader for this copy.
