Thanks for my copy of the book; sorry I'm late posting but the link in the article for the book kept taking me round in circles and doesn't link to the forum.
I've got to be honest and say I got bored with this book after about 100 pages and if it wasn't for the fact I'd received it in exchange for my opinions I would have stopped reading as I knew Jasper wasn't capable of committing murder and I couldn't care less who had killed Bee. The pace was too slow and repetitive due to it constantly flicking from the present to the past. The story did pick up near the end, but the book is 200 pages too long and I doubt many people will keep reading until the end which is a shame.
The book highlighted how difficult everyday situations are for both the carer/sufferer of these conditions and the character Jasper made me chuckle and sad all at the same time. However whole sections involving Jasper were completely implausible.
I know this was a proof copy but I was disappointed that there were no images of Jasper's paintings especially when you state in the acknowledgements that you worked with an artist. Are there images of the paintings in the hardback issue?
Why did you make the colour of the female voices blue and the male voices orange and ochre?
