Read full description of the books:
Wonderfully creepy and dark.
The copy I picked up in an op shop has a great, creepy cover, which is what attracted me to it, along with Kelleher's name. Some of these other editions have very obvious covers. The blurry, weird and scary mask lit by flame on my copy is a better depiction of the contents, whilst leaving much more to the imagination.
This book is subtle in many ways, and leaves much to ponder on the nature of morals and relationships. I particularly found the ending thought provoking, especially the reference to the sky trees and grass seen through different perspectives: the perspective of isolation and that of belonging. Such an interesting concept that I hadn't thought of before, and I found, to my surprise that it resonated with me.
