A dazzling story told in verse of sixteen-year-old Declan Lynch and the girl whose centuries-old voice rings in his head.
Written in prose and less than 200 pages, Thin Places is a very quick read. It traces Declan's quest to find out to whom the voice in his head belongs and readers are taken along on the journey, speculating about who (and when) she is.
I would have liked a little more from this story and felt the characters, particularly Rebecca, weren't completely fleshed out. The plot too felt a bit rushed and I although I understood it, I couldn't help but be slightly disappointed in the ending.
In all, however, I would recommend this book, especially for those who are interested in a break from traditional narratives.
