    I had been saving this for a sunny day, and I read it on a sunny day, and it was perfect; my memories of it will forever be infused with a sort of glow that could've come from the weather or from the story – perhaps a combination of both.

    2 stars This is the type of non-literary book that has literary aspirations yet its laboured attempts to imbue its story and characters with a certain dose of moral ambiguity and depth ultimately fall flat. In spite of its intriguing first few chapters The Truants soon followed the well-trodden pat...

    Not going to rate since I only read twenty percent. Was attracted to the book because of the Agath Christie theme. It just seemed so slow, going nowhere in a timely manner....
