What a gorgeous, smart, gripping, funny, sad, moving novel. It is deceptively simple in its form and writing. Short chapters. Short sentences. But the concision draws you all the more in to the world of Miriam and her enriched existence as a librarian. I read the book in one long sitting and still carry with me the exhilaration of discovering its emotional depths.

The Incident Report is a very deceptive book. It's incredibly easy to read, whips by at a breathless pace, but packs a whallop. Sometimes, because the material is so easy to access, one forgets that a writer wrote it, a writer conceived the plot, a writer was behind it. A story told in a series of incident reports is a wonderful idea - there were several moments in reading that I'd have to stop just to take in a brilliant human insight. Amazing read, I envy you starting it ... because I can't ever again.

This is a wonderful book, clever and engaging. The sad and sometimes funny observations are keen and poignant, providing social commentary that will stay with you. I highly recommend the book and congratulate the author on a stunning achievement.

Delightfully different story telling that is tight and yet descriptive. A page turner with a difference that left me wanting more.
