Catherine Chanter: Well Well Well....

Advantages: Umm, nicely written
Disadvantages: A mish mash of a plot

Catherine Chanterís The Well is nominally at least, the type of book that I might enjoy. Itís a tale of the near future where itís a very familiar world, but thereís a twist. In this case, the UK is going through a prolonged and severe drought, and Chante ...
