    4 terrifically turquoise stars This was both an engaging and sometimes disturbing story of a family in the aftermath of a tragedy told from alternating points of view Hassan a wealthy businessman and his 10 year old daughter Leila don t want to say too much about the plot, because it s hard to say much without giving anything away so I will focus on the characters the favorite part of books for me is always the characters. and the characters in this book were very well developed and one of them was likable.Hassan has worked very hard to get where he is, he is an Iranian wealthy businessman living in the UK he has a beautiful home, a beautiful wife, a beautiful family, and then tragedy strikes now in my opinion I did not care for his character on a personal level I did not like how he handled himself throughout the majority of this book, especially in regards to his actions towards his daughter. he also threw himself a bit of a pity party and didn t take much responsibility for some things he was very woah is me ...

    This book has a very powerful story line told by two characters Hassan Nassiri, who is a very wealthy and successful Iranian property owner and his 10 year old daughter Leila They lived in a beautiful house surrounded by beautiful things and such sadness When a terrible tragedy struck the family, life for them all, including Leila s mum, changed.Even before the tragedy there was one unhappy little girl who never felt quite good enough in the family unit and afterwards well things just seemed to get worse It all became too much for her and she made a decision The story follows Leila the choices she makes and the effect on her family, told through her father This is a story that really pulled at all of my emotions Leila was a broken little girl, with an innocence about her that seemed to make her even younger than her years at times.Kate Rigby has brought to life some incredible characters in this story, particularly Hassan and Leila Leila was such an open character from the beginning but Hassan was a closed entity that unravelled as the story unfolded I hadn t particularly liked this man to begin with but time and circumstances changed him There were some p...

    It is told from the perspective of father and daughter The father, Hassan, is a successful business man, his daughter is Leila, is the youngest of two daughters Now at this point I really do not want to give anything away, so I apologise for my vagueness But, a tragedy befalls the family, this story charts the way that Leila and her father deal with it, how the family dynamics have changed, also for Leila growing up and becoming a teenager At times it is heartbreaking, emotional and also annoying, I will explain that it is a good annoying, this is because of the decisions that the characters take There is a good range of emotions that run through this story and the characters have chances to make different decisions, but due to their stubbornness, they don t.I thought the characters were well written and the author has managed to keep the inflections o...

    See of my book reviews on my blog, Literary FlitsI enjoyed the dual viewpoint aspect of this novella which allows us to see the story unfold from both Leila s and her father, Hassan s, perspectives as they take chapters to speak directly to the reader Their switching from speaking about themselves in a mix of first and third person did take a bit of getting used to, but it begins to feel natural as the story progresses Their reactions to a traumatic event within the family send them onto very different paths and it is this divergence that provides the narrative arc.I felt I could understand Leila s journey easily She comes across as a mature child and her luck in meeting people prevents her from falling too far through society s cracks Hassan s dark introversion makes him a difficult character to empathise with, especially as we don t get to know him very well within the space co...

    I am going to come out and say it I don t like the title of this book, and I thought it was going to be boring I decided to review it anyway, as I am trying to open my mind and not judge books by their covers.Right now I am patting myself on the back as I did the right thing This book s voice is powerful A well written turquoise treasure just like a Rolex No doubts 5 Stars for the book from me The Good.The double point of view works so well It gives this book pace and a uniqueness that makes it hard to categorize The language, subtle differences, accents excellent It worked.The Bad.Leila and the traveler s thing I will not say than that to avoid spoilers but I found it a bit far fetched Though that community is alien to me, so I don t know.The Ugly.Death and dealing with i...

    This is a beautifully written and touching story of tragedy and redemption As with Rigby s other novels, the child s eye is used perfectly to draw us into family life and all it s flaws, using Leila, the daughter of wealthy Iranian Hassan, as the main narrator The story does jump back and forth between her point of view, and her father s, but it was Leila s viewpoint I really empathised with, and it was her I was rooting for from the very beginning She s feisty, strong willed and lives in the shadow of her much favoured older sister When the older sister dies in a tragic accident, Leila finds herself increasingly pushed out and resented, until she can bear it no and runs away at the tender age of 11 She falls in with various travelling families, and I very much enjoyed these parts of the stories As it is all told from her perspective, it was easy to become absorbed in their simple lives, and it was a pleasure to watch her indulge in so many simply childhood pleasures She enjoys her adventures to begin with, and her family just seem to fall apart behind her As the story moves on, things get harder for Leila, as she experiences the seedier side of life on the run, disappointment, disappointment and unrequited love, and finally her father Hassan realises what he has done and what h...

    This is a story as told by a wealthy Iranian father living with his family in England, and his bright ten year old daughter, Leila Tragedy strikes the family when they lose the older, favourite, daughter in a regrettable accident In their despair and sadness the parents withdraw from regular life and society, and their remaining child, Leila After almost a year of yearning for their attention, Leila runs away, somehow joins a travelling community, and learns to be streetwise as she dodges the authorities and her parents efforts to find her I did wonder how plausible this plotline is, but realised that in reality children go missing in London all the time, and what Leila experienced could be what happens to them The story is cleverly written in English as it might be spoken as a second language by a first generation Iranian, and the parlance of a ten year old searching for her place in the world Throughout the story I never qu...
