A great deal of thought and planning has clearly gone into the world building. I believed it, could see it happening and found it disturbing and fascinating at the same time . . .
Malley creates a harrowing dystopian world that keeps you turning the pages.
At times I felt I couldn't put this down, there were times where the action was riveting and others I just wanted to read on to find out the truth about the system . . . Malley has done an excellent job and it is well worth a read.
The Disappearances is vintage Malley. Its clear, elegant, flowing prose is easy to read and deceptively intelligent. The narrative concentrates equally on its wider themes - freedom, control, self-expression - and on its characters...I defy you to find anything wrong with The Disappearances. It's wonderful stuff. Don't miss it.
I love Gemma Malley . . . Somehow, she manages to produce books that are at once intellectual, challenging, sophisticated, exciting, romantic and accessible.
Praise for THE KILLABLES
