Gentlemen and Players - Joanne Harris
There is another narrator too - the child of the school porter, who longs to attend St Oswalds - and manages to do just that by mitching off from the local comprehensive and changing into St Oswalds' uniform to blend seamlessly into St Oswalds' school life. And as you read you begin to wonder if you like this character either!
Stick with the alternating narrators, go with the flow, but as they used to say at my school "concentrate"! The twists and turns as they come are marvellously conceived and should leave you mentally gasping! There are also some nice litle jokes in characters' names...... A brilliant concept, and how lovely to read a truly English thriller.
