Very good - definitely another half a star. Particularly clever how the narrator of the book changes at certain points without any warning to illuminate the main character from outside - I was always aware when the switch happened - and it was done without putting the internal life of the other character on the line - so produces a real sense of the main character achieving a change (of heart!) without commenting on the other characters who may or may not be changing - who knows? because the narrative is not focusing on that. Hard to describe. Also a nice 'New Zealand' feel - I felt I was there and not here (UK). A pleasure to spend some time with this book.
