The Crash of Hennington by Patrick Ness
Patrick Ness’s first novel written for adults recently reprinted.
As with his other books it is original, political and at times confusing but in the end satisfying.
Short chapters easily followed between many different characters and storylines. They are coming together, but how?
A rhinoceros herd with free range in the town, a country club with corrupt management, a married mayor and her long lost ex coming to win her back. Oppression, wealth and drug addiction. Prostitution, loyalty, religion and a town without history.
I highly recommend this title, it’s Patrick Ness darkness is hidden in farcical style.
