Brilliant, True Literature.

I bought The Little Friend some years back and thought it was an excellent book, lent it to friends that also enjoyed. When I saw that she had won the Booker Prize I immediately thought to buy the book for my Kindle. Sadly I didn't, as I read so many poor reviews. too long, boring, heavy etc etc Then just recently a friend told me that she had bought the book and loved it and passed it on to other friends so I downloaded it straight away.
The writing is superb, cannot understand the complaints, this is literature at it's best. It's not meant to be a fast read, take it slowly, yes it's a long book, so what, it's virtually three books for the price of one. It's a hard story, showing us that the affects of terrorism on those that are involved and those that lose loved ones. It also opens our minds to the fact that there is both good and evil in all of us and cowardice and bravery. The characters in the story are the best portrayals that I have read for years. Miss Tartt doesn't churn books out one after the other as so many authors, they are gems, to be read and not forgotten. I sincerely hope that this becomes a modern classic because it certainly deserves it.
