The Outcast – Sadie Jones

outcastREAD FOR BOOKCLUB

Chosen by Rachel

The Outcast tells the story of a man, recently released from prison, recalling his life as a boy who refused to accept the polite lies of a tightly knit community that rejects love in favour of appearances.

❚ “This is a heavy novel. Weighty in themes, drama and suspense. Not for the light hearted.” – Rachel

❚ “This book is a little depressing – the main character has an awfully tragic loss to bear and a father who offers him no real love.  Lewis Aldridge has been very well developed and I felt a lot of sympathy for him. The weird maternal-sexual tension is nicely disturbing and adds to the tension.  An enjoyable read for me.” – Jo

❚ “Thoughts” – Nadine

❚ “Thoughts” – Suzy
