    One thought on “Minding”

    1. Deeply affecting and beautifully written examination of mental illness and the effects it has not only on the sufferer, but on their loved ones, that neatly avoids the pitfalls of sentimentality and easy answers. One of the best novels I've read this year. Why this was overlooked by the Booker judges is a mystery.

    2. Not a book I could say I enjoyed, as such, as it's terribly sad through most of it, although I did sense a feeling of hope in the ending! I did love the simple style though, which made it very easy to like Jane and Billy, and really hope that it turned out well for the 2 of them in the end!

    3. Story of the effects of mental illness on a young mother and her son. Sad and scary, especially at the beginning, but became more hopeful later. I liked Jane (from a safe distance) and I would have liked to see more of Billy.
