Girl Meets BoybyAli SmithMy rating:4 of 5 starsAnother short novel between longer reads - at 164 pages it can be read in 1-2 sittings. I loved theAli Smith's
use of language, how she seamlessly slipped in words and phrases from
old Scots songs, poems and everyday life bringing back memories of my
youth. It is a reworking of Ovid but also uses other
myths/legends/stories such as BurningLily Lentonto tackles issues family, gender, commercial values, human rights and
needs, eco-wars. Well crafted, intelligent, witty, corny in the right
places - Eau Caledonia :) - and with a Shakespearean ending . Loved it.ashramblings
