    This is my second Rose Innes after Nineveh, which I enjoyed earlier this year It has certain similarities it is an allegorical tale set in Cape Town full of animal symbolism, but this time the animals are lions and the main character is male Each chapter is named after a different animal.Con is something of a drifter, recently returned from Londo

    3.5 rounded upAnother great novel from Henrietta Rose Innes Similarly to her other novel Nineveh this is set in South Africa, and the plot revolves around the nature and animals of the local setting Where Nineveh was about a pest relocator in the urban wilderness of Cape Town, Green Lion follows Con, a local guy who unintentionally lands himself a positio

    Review copy courtesy of Gallic Books via www.nudge.com my thoughts on that site in due course.I read my first of this author s novels last year, Nineveh, set in her home city of Cape Town and dealing with humans relationship with wildlife, in that case swarms of mysterious insects invading a housing development site that defy efforts to remove them This latest novel complements it

    Green Lion by Henrietta Rose Innes is one of those books that languished for far too long on my TBR pile, and I m so glad I ve taken the time to rectify this unfortunate state of affairs This story is told entirely from the point of view of Con, recently returned from working as a security guard in UK museums and trying to find employment.The novel fluidly leaps between past to present as w

    Green Lion is an exquisite novel that affected me deeply and I read it twice, several months apart Written with clear gorgeous prose, the novel is set in my home city, Cape Town, but in a world where there is little contact with nature and the characters long for a connection with animals Con has drifted through life, and when he is asked by the mother of an old school friend, Mark, to collect his b

    Many thanks to Goodreads and Gallic for my free copy of Green Lion.This was a well written ,original and thought provoking novel that confronts our ever diminishing relationship with the natural world After all the only encounters with wild animals most of us have is through T.V documentaries or the occasional visit to zoo.Green Lion is well written with a style that is to me, reminiscent of Paul Auster.Offb

    A haunting read that I can t stop thinking about Characters that stay with you and are uncomfortably resonant and familiar and broken A sadness about the near future and what it holds for human and animal in general, and Table Mountain in particular Memory, myth, but also real and harrowing, beautiful, illusive, cruel and devastating.

    I think I simply didn t jive with the author s writing style The prose often felt too self conscious and laborious to me As if his body wanted to lose the weight of the family s heavy meals, his bowels stirred too He pulled down his pyjamas and crouched down, taking a s right there, the warm, sweet stink of it rising up between his thighs A kind of honest a bodily truth you shouldn t tell Nothing to wipe with He used a tuft o
