The Quickening Maze by Adam Foulds

Recommended Posts

Great review, Janet. This book is on my TBR pile. Unlike you, I know nothing about Clare really, but the book appeals to me. I like short sections in books too - they definitely make me read quicker.

I don't think it matters if you don't know about Clare. It's not essential to the story. Essentially the 'facts' about him are based on real events, but I would say it stands up as a story in its own right. I do hope you enjoy it. :)

I've just finished reading this one. I've written a full review over in my reading list thread, but I just wanted to say that I think you can definitely enjoy this book without knowing anything about John Clare. A very enjoyable book to read.

I just finished this book and although Foulds, in my opinion writes beautifully, the storyline left me a bit empty. I felt the characters were only skeletal and needed a bit more flesh. Just could never really sink my teeth into it. I really struggled to finish it and only did to enjoy the writing.
