Naomi reviews The Best Kind of People 

by

The Shadow Giller jury is continuing to work its way through this year’s shortlist. Naomi, from Consumed by Ink, has read Zoe Whittall’s The Best Kind of People, which she describes as “timely, insightful, and a page-turner”.

“This is a book that will appeal to a wide audience, and will get people talking. And thinking: How would you react if someone you loved and trusted with the worst of crimes? The Best Kind of People is an examination of rape culture; what it looks like and how it affects us, the victims as well as the accused.”

Naomi goes on to say that while the subject matter is heavy, Whittall writes it in such a way that it “feels effortless and conversational. She even throws in some humour to lighten things up”.

    It was indeed a page-turner, I couldn’t put it down. She does indeed tackle this difficult topic with what appears to be such ease, it’s immensely readable (which for reasons that elude me is often a negative adjective).
    Her characters are so well-drawn, it’s easy to get inside their head or point of view.
