Review: Year of Wonders- moved

Year of Wonders
Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a beautifully written historical novel of the Plague. Brooks’ storytelling is sublime, her characters strong, real and wonderful (some are wonderful in their hideousness). The setting is finely written and supports the story. Read it – for goodness sake!
PS. Don’t let my long reading time put you off. I have read it over the year on my iPad in English Reading classes at work. I’ve snatched moments in time to read it – and never once lost the story or my feeling for it.

    • I felt very close to the characters, especially Anna. And having been the ‘producer’ of a school production of ‘The Crucible’ this novel gelled very nicely with that, and meant that I didn’t have to worry about keeping track of the history of the time. I was just all involved in the people.
