It's quiet - it's excellent

Surfacing (Descending Surfacing)Surfacing by Catherine Chisnall

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved Catherine Chisnall's 'Descending' and this is the sequel.

She apparently feared that 'Surfacing' might not be as good as 'Descending' but in fact, if anything, it is even better.

Not that it could fail. Catherine's quietly precise voice coaxes you along the sense of searching, of coping, of outrage.

A wonderful book.

  1. I bought Descending before Surfacing came along. I absolutely loved Descending - probably because I'm a teacher and the book made me cringe - in an entertaining way. Well done. Now you've made me curious about Surfacing...
