Some of you may know that I am a very slow reader and I am known to start so many books and never finish them, mostly because I have the shortest attention span, but deep deep down I genuinely wish I read more. I was sent this book a few (or more) months ago, but hadn't had time to start it properly until recently I started it again and I got really hooked.
Without giving too much away this book is set in Iceland (a place I now want to visit even more!) and based around the life of a young girl called Agnes who had committed a murder. She was forced to stay with a family on a remote farm until her execution. Burial tells the story of time with the family during a winter over 200 years ago. I really enjoy reading books like this where you get to know the characters, and you get so hooked that you feel like you know them. I remember finishing this book whist on the way to work one morning and it left me feel a little eerie.
This book is so compelling and and gripping, I highly recommend this book to you all.
