Review – The Scatter Here is Too Great by Bilal Tanweer 

 
This is going to sound terrible considering the book subject matter (the story centres around a terrorist atrocity) but I finished The Scatter Here is Too Great feeling kind of uplifted by the freshness of the storytelling. 

There’s something shambolic about this debut novel, intentionally so perhaps, but also because you get the sense that the author is still finding his feet and will no doubt go on to create bigger and better things.
