    Description

    5-star reviews on amazon.co.uk from the Booker Prize-shortlisted author of The Good Doctor comes a gripping novel of guilty secrets, obsession and self-reinvention, set on the African savannah. When Adam moves into the abandoned house on the dusty edge of town, he is hoping to recover from the loss of his job and his home in the city. But when he meets Canning - a shadowy figure from his childhood - and Canning's enigmatic and beautiful wife, a sinister new chapter in his life begins...Canning has inherited a vast fortune and a giant folly in the veld, a magical place of fantasy and dreams that seduces Adam and transforms him absolutely, violently - and perhaps forever.

    "Fast-paced and breathless... Galgut has a knack for the image that cuts to the quick of a character... his plots seem propelled by a logic of their own." ( Observer)

    A deep, dark fascinating story

    The story is compelling, getting deeper and darker at every turn. Humphrey Bower is masterful.

    A WASTE OF MONEY

    The book could have been an enjoyable listen (although some plot elements are downright beyond belief) but the narration reduces it to farcical levels. The narrator adopts a psuedo South African accent and strange voice intonations for all the characters, which makes them not only comical (at best) but wholly unbelievable and simple minded (at worse). It is off-putting and unnecessary - South Africans do not speak like that. I perservered only because I thought the author could not be blamed for the clownish performance, but my advice is: DON'T BUY THIS BOOK.
