The Weaning Press Reviews

An original, beautifully-written tale that lingers in the mind. * Sussex Life * Bloody brilliant - so sweet and so creepy. Read it now! -- Julia Crouch If you read only one book a year make it Hannah Vincent's The Weaning. I wondered whilst reading just where this story was taking me, then I arrived. -- Marion Horvath I read my copy on the train to London - in one hour and forty minutes and I hardly raised my head from the book, when I arrived I had just five pages left and was frantically turning the pages... incredible insight. -- Anne Cater Blown away by this book... I can't rave about this book enough!... gave me goosebumps... visceral... this book is more than just an expertly crafted story, it's more like an experience... without doubt a full on 5 star read. * Bookish Chat * A gripping page-turner. -- Paul McVeigh An original, surprising, beautifully crafted novel that stands out from the crowd... packs a powerful punch... pared down... enthralling... a great achievement. -- Anya Lipska This book is dark in the best possible way. Even if, as I did, the central tenet is guessed before it is revealed, tension is retained. The denouement packed an unexpected punch. I was momentarily felled. The writing flows, succinct and penetrating within a structure that perfectly balances compulsive engagement with storytelling. A stunning work that I read in one time forgotten sitting. Highly recommended. * neverimitate * The Weaning is a well written suspense novel focusing on loss, betrayal and mental health. It may be short however Hannah Vincent has carefully described events and characters to provide a page-turning story that does not disappoint. * Jera's Jamboree * A beautifully written, evocative and very dark story that explores issues that will resonate with the reader. Hannah Vincent is a talented observer; she sees life and people and relates them through her books with incredible insight. Fluent and powerful, I loved this book, just as I adored her first and hope that I don't have to wait quite so long for her next! * Random Things Through My Letterbox *
