BOOK CLUB READS Top 40 2016 28 FICTION FICTION A God in Every Stone Kamila Shamsie A God in Every Stone is an enchanting and intriguing book, spanning thousands of years and two continents, but focussing closely on just three people. The stories of archaeologist and VAD nurse, Vivian, soldier and independence campaigner, Qayyum Gul, and Najeeb, charming child and ‘the Herodotus of Peshawar’, are firmly embedded in the great dramas of their time – the First World War and the drive for Indian Independence. As each character grows and changes, the intertwined themes of betrayal and love, freedom and fairness and the past and the future are developed through the very personal views of each character. The result is a rich and compelling read, with a tight stor yline, interesting characters and a satisfactory conclusion. Borrow the e-book now
