Written with nail-biting suspense and cinematic pacing, The Outcast is an emotionally powerful evocation of postwar provincial English society and a remarkably uplifting testament to the redemptive powers of love and understanding.

He reached the churchyard and stood in the dark with the church even darker above him. –from The Outcast by Sadie Jones.
The main reason for mentioning this book again is because in the last couple of weeks a television adaption of the book has been on the BBC. Interestingly it was strictly controlled script wise by the author itself which is probably why I found it compelling but for me it all started with the boo. .It is difficult to know where to start when it comes to describing this book. This book beautifully deals with some fairly brutal issues and places them into a society which is somewhat different to nowadays. The descriptions of the violence are somewhat shocking but this is only to emphasise the problems that these people have to deal. I really felt quite claustrophobic while reading the whole book and felt just as trapped as Lewis and Kit did.
