About J.M. Bardsley

Jb currently lives on a hill not far from the coast on the eastern side of the smallest continent on earth. When it’s very quiet and still at night you can even hear the roar of the pacific ocean, or maybe it’s the highway? no, let’s say it’s the ocean. She has vivid dreams, particularly when she eats peanuts. Oh, and she lives under a hat, because she likes hats, maybe because it feels slightly safer there, and maybe because when one is wearing a hat, one is ready for just about anything.

Review by: Nick Hare on March 6, 2014 : (no rating)
I haven't finished this book yet but I'm already impressed.
I started reading it at 5pm on Tuesday and have got 1/3 way through. I simply can't put it down, until I am forced to by mundane things like work and sleep. fast-paced is an understatement. JB doesn't waste pages describing the environment like some writers do. No its all about the story.
Refreshing, entertaining a really good read.
