Winter by Ali Smith

"In the middle of the night Art wakes up from a  dream."

This one was a bit of a slow burn that paid dividends at the end. For a while I was fumbling around with the discombobulated head before it all came together in a glorious fashion. I remember enjoying Autumn more, the whole way through and I'd been chomping at the bit to get my teeth into this next instalment. 

When all the disparate threads combine it does become a beautiful tapestry and one that I implore you explore. Ali Smith is a bit of genius with words, but you don't need me to tell you that.

I love the exploration of the real versus the fake and the lies we tell between family members. These themes are fabulously fleshed out within these pages. Crack open a copy you won't be disappointed.

5 out of 5, winter is cold, and yet this novel warms my heart.
