The Outcast: A Novel by Sadie Jones
The Outcast: A Novel

bonniegarvin, April 2, 2008

I love this book. For me it has it all. The characters are compelling and heartfelt. The story is powerful and poignant. The language is poetic and evocative. Jones's fluid prose is seemingless effortless. At the same time, I felt as though I was reading a thriller being propelled through the book. My heart was racing at the same time it was breaking. The characters are so real they feel as if they're going to walk off the page. Jones captures a place and time as well as a mood. But she doesn't do it through a lens of nostalgia. Rather she shines a harsh light into the dark recesses where hypocrisy hides, exposing its ugly truths.
