Top 40 Book Club : Top 40 Book Club Reads 2019
FICTION 15 What should I read next? The Horse man by Tim Pears The Unseen Roy Jacobsen A Norwegian bestseller and shortlisted for the 2017 Man Booker International Prize, The Unseen is set on a remote island in the North Sea where a fishing family pursue their traditional ways in the face of change. Ingrid Barroy, who bears the name of the island where she was born, grows to maturity and seeks work and a better life on the mainland until duty and the capricious forces of nature draw her back. With crisp, clear writing, this is a mesmerising and sometimes surreal novel that celebrates the serenity of island life, and questions the sense of remaining in a harsh, unforgiving landscape.
