The first quality the reader will note is the ability of the author to make every scene and character in the novel feel real. The characters are very dynamic, the reader will feel as if he/she has met them before; the characters each have very unique personalities and quirks. The events are fairly quick, but not too quick so as to affect how the reader digests the heavier information and scenes in the novel. The whole story seems very realistic to the reader, there will be no rolling eyes over this novel. Danni, the main character, is a pleasure to read about. She enjoys photography to the point of influencing the reader to think about taking up the hobby. Photography may be Danni's redemption; the ending is perfect and harmonious. This book is recommended for young adults/adults who enjoy eloquent novels. 4 starsI received this book to review, this in no way influenced my opinion

Beware: once I had started this book, I couldn't let go of it (and this doesn't happen very often with me). I wanted to read a little bit during my lunch break and ended up reading all afternoon (which means that I will have to catch up on my work tonight). Kenya Williamson has this amazing capacity to make the reader believe he or she is actually witnessing what's happening. As if you could breathe with the characters and feel their vulnerability. I think that the best word to describe her style is limpidity. She has a limpid style. And the story sounds true, plausible, even autobiographic- I don't know whether it's the case. Danni didn't have the best start in life. Her dad left and her mum is very sick. Depth of Focus tells the story of her quest for independence, and how her love of photography might be her redemption (hence the title, Depth of focus). I actually liked it so much that I am going to buy a few books to give to my friends as a present.
