When the main character is on the verge of committing suicide he is whisked away to the mysterious island of Moristoun to be given time to think about his decison and the chance to return to his old life with the possibility of a better future. The characters the author has created who reside on the island are first class and have their own story to tell, they are governed by the council and must obey the laws that are laid down in the book. The deep human emotions that are protrayed allow the reader to really make a connection with each and every one of them.
An excellent read with brilliant characters and an absorbing tale of peoples misfortunes and it would be nice to think that such a place existed where we were are all given a second chance to return to the mortal coil before we have to move one. This author is definitely on my reading list.
Since then I've written and edited for a wide range of publications, including the Scottish Daily Express, The Big Issue in Scotland, The Herald, The Scottish Standard and The Scottish Daily Mail.
I now work full-time as a sub-editor for the Daily Record and Sunday Mail. When not at work I relax at home with my family and survey my simian empire, rhesuspark.com, which is probably the world's only spoof monkey park.
