THE FAULT TREE by Louise Ure

THE FAULT TREE is an especially good book, one of the best I’ve read this year.

Louise Ure’s use of language makes you stop and reread the last sentence or two. Often. She builds word structures which swirl about your mouth like chocolate—the flavours burst—the shock makes you feel as though you’d been asleep. You eye the words with a new kind of respect. By the time you’re well into the book, you’re in love with the wordmaster.

But it isn’t just the clever words which keep you there.
