The Crow Girl Book Review

‘The Crow Girl’ Book Review

I don’t think I’ve ever read a book like The Crow Girl. I can’t decide if it was a work of high avant garde, wherein our expectations are subverted (no satisfying ending, double and triple tricks from unreliable narrators, perhaps making a comment on the overuse of unreliable narrators?).
