Elizabeth's Review: 2012 Longlisted: Tan Twan Eng's The Garden Of Evening Mists (Review #3)

From Mandy Boles: With The Teleportation Accident, Ned Beauman has created one of those rare novels that thrives on quirk and whimsy rather than deteriorating in it.

Elizabeth's review of: Communion Town by Sam Thompson for our BookerMarks collaboration literaryhoarders....

This reviewer can only give 1 star: Book Review: 2012 Longlisted: Will Self’s Umbrella

2.5 stars for this one filled with far too much dysfunction and weirdness to make it an enjoyable read. Book Review: 2012 Long Listed: Deborah Levy's Swimming Home
