A decent (or descent depending on how you look at it) read but not for the faint-hearted
Growing up, I was always told to be quiet if I have not anything nice to say. I've always disagreed with that notion, but still abided by it whilst under parental supervision. "Cement Garden" is just as much about being young and the accompanying growing pains, but with a thick dose of the macabre that the author, Ian, seems to have a firm hold on the balance. However, the incessant emphasis on incestuous themes is not just disturbing but in many ways unnecessary. I am only giving this one 2 stars because their are literally two stars in the book: Jack and Julie.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
