Review of All Among the Barley by Melissa Harrison

This book was selected as it had come back from a reading group and we had no other books available. Unfortunately only 3 of us read it - 2 gave up after the first chapter.

Those who read it found it an interesting and well written account of rural life with a very sad ending. The story had some resonances of Thomas Hardy but without the depth of character. All were at a loss to understand the high praise this book received from the critics as demonstrated by the score of 5.5
