A good review for A Fistful of Dust. At first, I was a bit concerned by the reviewer’s comments re: the relationship of the characters and being introduced to so many, but then later the reviewer made it clear this was because she hadn’t realised it was one book in a linked series. Although it can be read as standalone if a reader didn’t know anything about the background behind the story I can see where it might be a little confusing. I love how she stresses the ‘sense of foreboding’ and subtle foreshadowing.
