by Jenni MillsI was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this novel, which unravels family secrets involving eccentric archaeologists, black magic, wacko neo-pagans in conflict with the scientific community, crop circles, the dawning of the rave phenomena, murder, progressive rock, war, channel 4 and kettle after kettle of tea. I'm not kidding.
The semi-detached yet insightful protagonist India is a very compelling and complex character. However, the portrayal of her grandmother as a young girl is very unique in attributing her with curiosity, sexuality and a sense of being an active agent in her own life despite the morals of the time and her situation as a "common" girl; how refreshing such an anomaly of literature is...
In addition, the research into the zeitgeist of the early 1900s (in particular the ideas concerning the occult) and into neo-paganism is thorough.
