This was also my first by this author and still remains my favourite, although I've yet to read The Hand That First Held Mine.

I've just finished this. As someone who's "been there" so to speak, once the dog has crossed your threshold, it's very difficult to get rid of him. A very moving reading experience.

Lynne, I saw this play last year in Nottingham and it was brilliant. We went to the matinee on a Saturday and as far as I can recall, the mixed-age audience was reasonably well behaved.

Look after that back! I joined a yoga class last September and it's one of the best things I've ever done.

I finished this book at the beginning of the week, I had been reading it for the best part of a month. Other things kept getting in the way, as they so often do, but I wanted to make time to treat this story with the reverence I felt it deserved. It was not a book I could pick up and put down at any time or in any place. I have read all the other comments with interest. For me, this was a very powerful story. I felt that for Brodeck, writing the report was a kind of therapy. I saw the rest of the villagers as the flock but Brodeck was the Black Sheep. Although the Mayor was an unlikeable character, he was the shepherd of the flock and was allowing Brodeck to come to terms with events, to move on and be accepted again by the community. The murder of the Anderer was one straw too many. Aspects of this book reminded me of One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich and also Lovely Green Eyes. Although I have moved on to something else, this story is still with me.

I had this book out from the library but had to return it because it was requested - although I am "staff" I never abuse the system. So now I will have to wait until a reading group has finished with it because they seem to have requested all the available copies.

DGR, in reply to your question - I sort of guessed, but it was still a shock when I actually read the page you refer to. All in all, it's one big shocking read.

I have just finished We Need To Talk About Kevin (with some books I am years behind everybody else). I am now reading Flight by Sherman Alexie.
