    One thought on “The Quiet Spectacular”

    1. I d give this 2 and a half stars really The novel is split into 3 parts, each one narrated by a different character Loretta the school librarian, Chance the teenager and Riva the older woman and environmentalist I didn t really connection with any of the 3, although Chance has a pretty authentic teen voice, and in fact I found the stereotypical aspects of Loretta annoying So sadly while this was an ok read, it was nothing spectacular.

    2. Laurence Fearnley is one of my favourite New Zealand authors I ve had a reading drought lately and have struggled with concentrating and becoming absorbed in a book This book may not have been the best choice for my re entry My perseverance was rewarded by the characterisation in this novel Fearnley s passion for wetlands is clear, but doesn t descend into preaching Loved the search for the names of adventurous, often unrecognised, women The novel is overtly feminist than Fearnley s others.
