Bearmouth – Liz Hyder – Signed Copies
First of all a disclaimer . . . Liz Hyder is a friend. That not withstanding this is her first novel and it received the following review in The Times yesterday (14/9/19)
‘This is a book about bravery in extremis by a writer as courageous as they come. Liz Hyder’s young adult debut is like nothing I have read before and feels as though it is the work of a far more mature writer who has letters after her name and awards cluttering their mantelpiece.’
Bearmouth is a thriller set in the subterranean world of a mine where men and boys work drawn by the promise of an escape from the hunger and poverty above ground. Newt is the main protagonist who accepts all of life underground until the arrival of Devlin; Devlin makes Newt look anew at the world that they occupy and sets in motion a chain of events that could destroy their entire world.
