Review

Enthralling throughout...My Weekly

A
vivid and deeply compelling novel, Caging Skies is an existential battle of moral and ethical extremes. Christine Leunens is an adept and eloquent storyteller -- Georgia Hunter ― New York Times bestselling author of We Were the Lucky Ones

The good-natured humour and quirkiness of the film and the drama of the novel are quite fun to contrast, and both are impactful in their own right.Cherwell

The best part of this
interesting novel is its ability to show parts of our history which others dismiss: why suffering can make some people more sensitive but others more cruel, and how a war, such an outrage to human dignity, blurs the line between the victorious and defeatedElle

Leunens said the film showed moviegoers that "we have a choice, are we going to go back to this kind of thinking ... superior, inferior ... or are we going to move on and bring more love and compassion to our relationships?"Guardian

Totally compellingWoman's Weekly (NZ)

Leunens has an ear for language and the ability to create a vividly sensual world for her characters that I found highly satisfying -- Cushla McKinney

A novel that breaks all the rules. In spite of this, or maybe because of it, the result is a disturbing and gripping novel that has haunted me ever since I finished reading it. ― New Zealand Books

Disturbing, moving,
eminently readable - this is a story you won't be able to put downMy Weekly

1.0 out of 5 stars JoJo Rabbit an inspired adaptation of an awful book
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 8 January 2020
I bought the book on the back of seeing JoJo Rabbit. What a mistake. This has to be the oddest oil I have read in a long time. The film covers the essence of the first half of the book....and a few pages into the second half you can see why.

It’s almost like two different stories welded together but with overlapping characters. The book is not uplifting. The prose, described as “muscular” is thick heavy and clunky. (The description should have been a pointer to “avoid”)

If you have seen the film and are drawn to the book, avoid
If you haven’t seen the film and have come across the book, avoid....go see the film.

It’s getting 1 * because I can’t give it any less.
