Memoirs of a Dipper Read ½ 104 Read ó PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ´ Nell Leyshon Nell Leyshon ´ 4 Read 'Leyshon is a master of domestic suspense' Observer 'There's different ways to do it I can slowly move closer step by step or I can do it in one movement and bump into them Easiest is in a pub then I can put my drink too close to theirs Move my stool near theirs. What elevates this tale of an abusive childhood that begets a dysfunctional criminal is the unusual structure and the first person narrative Gary the titular dipper is an unusual narrator and his narration grabs the reader by the labels and never lets go until the final page Gary is a mass of contradictions one minute during a period of self reflection he s trying to turn his life around the next he s in the throes of addiction or making the kind of move that is only ever going to result in bad things for him and those around him Despite Gary signalling some kind of redemption at the book s outset Memoirs of a Dipper is very unpredictable and it rattles along at a terrific pace My only two criticisms of an otherwise excellent read are there were just too many ups and downs to be credible and whilst Gary is a memorable character some of the other characters feel underwritten However these are minor criticisms and Memoirs of a Dipper is a visceral memorable tale I look forward to reading by Nell Leyshon
