I read this because I liked the author's other novel. Nora has a lot of tongue in cheek humour that is hidden within dark psychological scenes. Nancy thinks she is about to bag a lucky break when she shares a limo with a playboy millionaire Vince, but suffers a horrific car crash that causes her to take on this twisted Nurse Ratchet type character that takes the piss out of pretentious celebrity lifestyle. It's weird and very English. You'll either get it or you won't. I will never forget the Hatchett Inn. A pub like this exists in every UK town. A memorable read that I would recommend.
Disclaimer: I received this book for free.Clocking in at under 250 pages, Nora isn't a long book. Fully expecting to be finished with it within a short few hours I settled down with it yesterday morning. However, Nora takes a deceptively long time to read, as it couldn't be considered a smooth, nor easy, read. Getting past the somewhat hap-dash editing is but one of the problems. Although off-putting, these errors aren't unforgivable, and could at least be remedied by the author for future copies. Unfortunately, other things are not so easy to overlook.One of the biggest problems with Nora is that it can be confusing. I often found myself having to go back and reread sentences, and several times whole passages would confound me. Having to skip back to work out what was happening was, at best, inconvenient. At worst it was completely disorientating, and sudden changes in location, time-frame, and topic were not rare.The other large problem is that I neither found the story compelling, or believable. I was unable to lose myself in the book, accept the plot, or believe what was happening. This is, in part, due to the fact that main character Nancy is all over the place. She doesn't feel real, she's just a plot device with some back-story.Maybe other readers will like the writing style of Harwood, but I found it over-descriptive. It appears to be almost 'poetic' at times, but is often the cause of confusion, rather than clarity.
