Animal People - Review & Giveaway

This review is courtesy of Product Talk by Nuffnang

I love a good book, in fact I love to read full stop, often having several books on the go at once!  In the absence of books or magazines I would read a cereal packet.  

So when I had the opportunity to read and review Animal People by Charlotte Wood I was delighted.  I haven’t written a book review since school so it was a bit of a challenge.

                                   Animal People

Animal People follows a day in the life of Stephen Connolly, and it is a bad day.

Stephen is not a happy man, bullied by his mother and sister, unfulfilled by his dead end job and having decided his relationship must end he embarks on a day that goes from bad to worse.

Overlaid with the relationships between people and animals, and Stephen’s inability to relate, Animal People explores the best – and worst- of our society.

A great read, thoroughly enjoyable.  I haven’t read Charlotte Wood before, but I will be in the future.

Now for the giveaway.  I have a copy of Animal People for one of my readers.
