    Behindlings (E–pub READ) Å Nicola Barker This book was great fun I love Barker's weird imagination to create such a strange cult character like Wesley is a feat The story line is linear but written like a mystery novel you don't get all the details there are plenty of loose ends left open to the imagination and she builds her characters slowly and systematically I didn'

Behindlings Summary ¾ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF characters ↠ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ✓ Nicola Barker Esley's newest followers Jo Bean turns out to be interested in confronting Catherine than sticking with the behindlings plots that have been twisted up come undoneWith Behindlings the inimitable Nicola Barker takes a character who is perhaps her most compelling creation to date and lets him run off with her reade. I started this book forever ago and I should have kept at it and focused on finishing it in a much timely manner But I didn t the book hardly kept my attention for a full chapter at a time so I kept putting it down and going back to it every now and then As a result I easily confused the characters and forgot who some were all together This woman is an amazing writer and I m sure this book is infinitely interesting but it is very slow on purpose I believe and often confusing which made it difficult for me to stick with it I m going to hold on to this one and go back and start at the beginning sometime when my schedule is less crazy and I can really focus on it The characters are very interesting and I d like to see how they end up But right now I don t have the attention span for it
