Practice Makes Perfect

Fitting Conclusions-Arts & Entertainment-Books-Children-TimesOnline

Two authors I haven�t previously liked have novels worth recommending on this subject. Cliff McNish wrote The Doomspell Trilogy and the Silver Sequence, which generated gigawatts of supernatural suspense but never found a satisfying storyline. But Angel, his eighth book, follows the acclaimed Breathe and shows how practice makes perfect.

Siobhan Dowd�s grim tale of a teenage pregnancy in Ireland, A Swift Pure Cry,won numerous prizes last year, but I much prefer The London Eye Mystery, not least for its tender comic ebullience.
