Book review: The Cactus by Sarah Haywood

Sunday, February 4, 2018 Permalink

My favourite book of 2017 was the fabulously clever, quirky and addictive Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman. In fact many of my favourite books feature eccentric characters – sympathetically created and directed, and beautifully written.

The Cactus by Sarah Haywood came as a complete surprise as I’d heard nothing about it but found the lead character, Susan Green almost as prickly-ly loveable as Eleanor. In that – god they’re annoying but endearing – kind of way!
