Divided Kingdom by Rupert Thomson

0 No tags Permalink

1165165When the United Kingdom is divided into four based on the four humours – sanguine, melancholic, choleric or phlegmatic – people are sent to live in the quarter where they are deemed to belong. Thomas Parry is one such child, taken from his parents in the middle of the night. What follows is his journey into adulthood from one end of the kingdom to the other.

While parts of this book are fantastic with beautiful prose and believable dystopia (if there is such a thing), others parts are totally out there, like the author has taken a turn and forgot to invite the reader along. You will find yourself questioning what type of personality you are and if any doubt, there is a quiz to do at the end that helps. Any interesting read.

My rating: ★★★1/2
