Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
I also like the fact that it is set in the sixties and Nicolls is true to the period. Especially in her description of clothes, music, and films. My two favourite scenes are the lunar landing and the conversation about comets and dinosaur extinction. I also like the scenes when she is interviewed by a newspaper journalist and when she is doing an interview-style television program because in both we get to see the real nature of the main character, Prudence Bari.
It is even more beautifully written than her first two novels. I love her easy-to-read style, yet every page has some issue worth debating or thinking about. It certainly made me reflect on my attitudes and beliefs. It is exceptionally thought-provoking.
