A delightfully twisted tale, full of sharp humour and keen observations. Oskar makes for a very memorable modern day anti-hero
A dark, beautifully crafted and, at times hilarious, story about a young man’s spiritual transformation. Highly recommended for young adults and grown ups alike
Unique, absorbing, complex and absolutely unforgettable
Insightful… moving ... on a par with The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night
Written with enormous humour and compassion, Oskar and his supporting cast live well beyond the pages of this highly imaginative and haunting tale. Hugely thought-provoking, this would be a fantastic book to read and discuss with young adults
Deliciously dark humour…an absolute triumph of a character
A stunning debut. Made me laugh out loud, cry … and ache with recognition
A magical, thought-provoking and uplifting tale...one of this year’s must-reads
A life-affirming and original debut from a local author who is really one to watch
A wonderful concept! I loved the idea of being offered a retrospective of one’s life.
Cinema Lumière is one of those magical stories you cannot put down… full of sharp wit and an understanding of the human condition.
The characters are so unique and well described.
