    You could say no one is boring if you truly get to know them But what happens if an author doesn t really get to know his characters This novel taught me just how dependent a novel is on its characters It doesn t matter how well you can write or even how potentially compelling your story is if

    I had expected to see a lot of fiction about the First World War in 2014, but it seems like every other new novel I pick up is set in or around the Second World War There s nothing wrong with that, and I ve read enough WW2 fiction to know there are as many stories as there were participants, but still

    Reading Adam Foulds s new novel In the Wolf s Mouth, I was reminded of literary movements like Oulipo, which explored the concept of potential literature.Don t get me wrong it s not that the novel is particularly experimental It s the potential aspect that stuck in my head In the world of Oulipo and others,

    This is an intriguing and complex story set in North Africa and Sicily during the Second World War A fractured and in places visceral narrative follows and eventually links four characters from different worlds through the chaos of war, and the politics of the aftermath Powerful stuff.

    Reading books off our voluminous shelves, rather from library I picked this book up because it takes place during WW II, a subject of interest to me Four men are followed one British soldier, one American Italian soldier, a Sicilian shepard and a Sicilian Mafia guy who has been in US but returns to Italy at the end of the War Interesting and well wr

    It was what it was Like a sketch for a big blockbustery kind of thing which ran out of steam before it got started Like a pilot for the tv series that won t happen Foulds can write in a no nonsense kind of way, but this assemblage never movesthan the laptop keys.
