This book had me chuckling out loud on so many occasions, her attention to detail in this portrayal of a strict religious upbringing and coming of age/self discovery journey brings the place and characters alive. Wintersons plays with the use of allegorical fantasy - this didn't work so well for me, but she has used it to better effect in subsequent stories. A great read.
