Book Review: The News Where You Are: A Novel by Catherine O’Flynn

Posted on: May 24, 2012

I was excited to read this, as I really enjoyed Catherine O’Flynn’s debut novel, What Was Lost. This book did not disappoint. Overriding themes of loss, what we remember, and who remembers us. Wrap that up with a little mystery, and a surprising twist, and you’ve got a page-turner that makes you think. I enjoyed the author’s technique of moving forward and back through time, to give us snippets from other characters’ points-of-view — in some books this can be really annoying, but here it moved the story along nicely.

A very good book – I’m looking forward to the author’s next novel!
