Pageturners on Warlight

Biography 1 (Small)

Hi there, here is the blog post that went astray about Warlight:

A mesmerising new novel Warlight tells a dramatic story set in the decade after World War II through the lives of a small group of unexpected characters and two teenagers whose lives are indelibly shaped by their unwitting involvement.

Pageturners rated the book Warlight by Michael Ondaatje from 2 to 4 ¾ out of a score of five.

It’s an interesting book that starts with two teenage children being brought up by criminals and had pageturners discussing writing style, structure, plot twists and turns and some unresolved issues.

Comments included “liked the puzzles, lovely writing, thought the husband had done her in, the second part were flashcards of memory, the reader was drip fed, where nothing was what it seemed, loved it, love how he writes,well crafted, well constructed, didn’t like it at all, the plot had holes, didn’t like the writing, nothing was resolved, intricate plot, husband was a shadowy figure, some of the characters were shadowy, it was murky, foggy and dim like warlight, too confusing, used nicknames, he was reflecting on life, mother was a strategic thinker, she was a flawed hero.”
