A book review of Jamrach’s Menagerie by Carol Birch

This is the first book I’ve bought in ages, and it was recommended to me by Michelle Kane on Twitter. I really liked it, but I wasn’t expecting the ending. I’m not sure what I was expecting or should have been expecting!

It’s one of those poetic books where you just sit there savouring the language and marvelling at so much texture in so little space. It starts off in a rich and evocative London, vaguely smelling of Dickens, and ends up…

I must confess to have been pretty stuck on reading feel-good books of late, and not finishing anything with an edge, but I’m pleased to have this on my overflowing bookshelves.
