Island Read 2007 we want to encourage people to talk
about what they have read with friends, family, colleagues and
neighbours. On this page we will post a selection of comments
received by readers about what they think of the novel.
We also encourage people to share their stories of migration,
whether these be personal experiences of coming to or leaving
Britain, encountering people who have just arrived here or tracing
a family history, as well as personal reflections on what it
means to be British. We welcome digital photos and other images
to illustrate this section. We will also be including poems and
short stories inspired by the migration and identity themes.
