This is supposedly a love/loss type of story with a bit of ghostliness thrown in but it doesn't really work. I have to empathise with characters and in this I find them thinly written and unconvincing. The idea might work with a short story but this one is stretched far too thinly. Not seeing why anyone would fall in love with them! O'farrel is better than this. Well narrated thought to be fair.
Maggie O'Farrell can write and I loved her book 'After You'd Gone. But this was a drama too far. Filled with detail that became endless and totally unnecessary. The story so over-blown with the Ghost-like appearances of Sinead and the expectant story of what exactly Marcus had done to her - I really wanted to slap them all. One has to like the characters and I thought they were all tiresome. The story teller trying to rush with breathy overtones didn't help either. Sorry - very disappointed.
