When I reviewed ‘A Voice’ I said I thought it felt like the author’s writing style had matured, and that’s definitely evident in this book. If you don’t plan on reading this book anytime in the next few years for example, because you are too young ; please DO NOT continue to read this review.
Considering the stance at the end of the book that seems to be the author’s I’m wondering if that was supposed to be Ismael’s thought process?
