LoveReading Expert Review of The Olive Readers

If you want a beautifully written prize-winning novel whilst at the same time a look into the future from an exciting debut novelist then this is the one for you.   It’s a world, almost too terrible to contemplate and yet it carries you along almost like a drug.  It’s imaginative, it’s gripping and at times quite breathtaking.  If you as a reader want to be challenged then look no further.
