The Lieutenant (Hardcover) by Kate Grenville

6 Jun

A satisfying and beautiful read –– FIVE STARS!

The Lieutenant is one of the best books I’ve read in a very long time. The author uses a very simple writing style to reveal a powerful human drama. I don’t like to reveal plots in my reviews–you can get them from the book’s promotional material and other reviewers, but the emotional impact of this volume is stunning. The pacing of her story, her characters, the plot: All form a work of lasting value. This is a very fine piece of literary art that is easily understood and appreciated by everyone. I join Kate Grenville’s fans with exuberance and look forward to reading her other work.
