  1. I thought Alastair Bruce s Wall Of Days was excellent and I was hoping for great things from this novel It s not bad, and has some excellent things about it, but overall I found it a bit of a disappointment, I m afraid.It s a difficult book to summarize It is narrated from various points of view at different times sometimes in the third person, sometimes in the first and concerns John Hyde who is now a successful London banker At the age of eight he witnessed the death of his older brother in a [...]


  2. Review by ireadnovels.wordpress comI loved reading every page of Boy on the Wire by Alastair Bruce I highly recommend this novel There is definitely a lot of suspense running through the pages This is a story of three ordinary loving brothers that were going to jump from high rocks into the water A tragedy happens Which brother is telling the truth into the secret of their young brother s death The boy on the wire shows how quickly an ordinary family life can take one dark fatal turn and nothing [...]


  3. If we create a story in our mind and stick to it long enough it becomes our truth But what if that truth is challenged How deep can memories be buried What are the ramifications of another s truth John Hyde leaves his neat London life in search of truth in South Africa s Eastern Cape The reader is swept away on a turbulent stream of consciousness and left adrift with thoughts on child psychology, family dynamics, truth and forgiveness It s a gripping, thought provoking read written in sharp star [...]


  4. I ended up skimming through the book because frankly I found the style too mannered, too self conscious Alastair Bruce could take some tips from Margaret Mahy s excellent Memory I also found it unbelievable that parents could handle a tragedy that badly And, that an eight year old could behave as the protagonist did A disappointing read, I m afraid.
