I have just finished reading Peter Temple's Miles Franklin Award winning novel, Truth. While I am not normally an avid reader of crime fiction (apart from my love of Patricia Cornwell), I did really engage with this story. I loved the vivid Melbourne setting, and although I found the large number of characters a little challenging to keep up with, it was a fantastic story. The portrayal of characters was believable and human; I liked that it was not ALL happy endings, and yet the narrative provided a satisfactory resolution to the plot lines. Lots of complexities and subplots - a recommended read! My only gripe was an error early on: 'women' instead of 'woman' - cannot help but get stuck on such mistakes :(
What to read tonight? I need to select from the substantial pile next to my bed ... perhaps Pearl in a Cage?
