    1. I fell in love with Morgan McCarthy's writing last year, when I read, The Outline of Love, a wonderful debut novel. And so I was intrigued when a read about this, her second novel, which mixes a Greek myth with a contemporary coming of age. I thought it might be the perfect coming together of writing style and subject matter.Persephone Triebold grew up on a country estate in the Scottish Highlands, the only child of a widowed father who was anxious that she shouldn't be disadvantaged by her circ [...]


    2. Oo, exciting giveaways win =)I really enjoyed this book, which especially seems to be saying something as this is a hardback copy. I try to avoid fiction in hardback form as you just can't curl up with it. A little of this book is set in the highlands of Scotland, but really this is a book of London. Persephone leaves her isolated Scottish home where she lives with her widowed father, to start a university course in management in London. She starts off with the stereotypical student things - par [...]


    3. when I first received this book I was impressed by the cover - it gave that " more than what's expected" vibe.Having never read any of Morgan McCarthy's novels previously I had an open mind as to what the book would be like. The inside cover gave the gist of the story but with a hint of intrigue.However much as I wanted to really get engrossed in the tale of Perspehone it left my mind to wander - wanting more out of girl who had so many possibilities but didn't use them !This basically is a tale [...]


    4. Captures beautifully both a doomed love affair and the first days away from home of an 18 year old, born and raised in the Highlands, who has just moved to London for university. It's wonderfully atmospheric, and the author writes very well about London in all its contradictions. The emotional and imaginative life of the main character, Persephone, rang very true to me. Really beautifully written, fantastic use of language and arresting images. The author writes equally well about the naivety of [...]


    5. I was lucky enough to receive this book for free through First Reads. As I started this book, I really thought I was going to like it. The author, from the very beginning, writes very beautifully.It's about a girl living in the Scottish Highlands with her father, who goes off to uni in London. When she first gets there she does the usual uni stuff, partying, making new friends, etc.She then believes herself to be in love with a man she comes across while there.It all started well, there was an [...]


    6. An enjoyable coming of age story, but I felt that the tagline 'it started with obsession' was a bit misleading in terms of genre. It wasn't a thrilling book, as I was imagining a 'fatal attraction' sort of thing. In fact the protagonist has a crush on a literary heartthrob, and takes a job at a publishing house to get to meet him, which she does and a relationship ensues. The description of her feelings and her interpersonal relationships with her housemates and being accepted in to a bohemian, [...]


    7. Hmm. Kind of guessed what might have been going on. That, or the other possibility I imagined. Well written and observed, but wish the plot could have taken me somewhere more interesting. Bored of Perse and her context by the end. Too flat a story. Classics link felt contrived and irritating. "Tries too hard". Very apt, Camilla. Did the author recognise this in her own literary efforts?


    8. Won as a first reads giveaway. Not sure what to expect but pleasantly surprised. Story follows the an 18 year old woman starting out in life desperate to getaway from her isolated home in the highlands. She arrives in London with hopes of excitement and gets rather more than she bargained for, doomed love affair and mystery. Worth a read!


    9. Oh my This book is just one big disappointment! I gave it one star thanks to the beautiful cover and great description of chavism! But the story itself is boring Incest ridden and making an excuse for it Coming of age story which fails to impress No no no


    10. Couldn't get into this one. Got one third of the way through, not going anywhere. Too many other great books to read!



    11. I only gave the book one star because of the amazing imagery the author uses. Otherwise it was a dreary book that did not catch me at all. I battled to finish it.
