Welcome to my stop on The Golden Orphans blog tour. This was a quick read that made my recent train journey go by in a flash. The book opens as we meet our unnamed narrator, an artist, at his mentor’s funeral in Cyprus.

“I think I am about to do something stupid.” “In Cyprus you only need ask yourself one question,” Tara said, deadly serious. “Is it out of desperation?”. The Orphan, the first book, still haunts me in a BEAUTIFUL way.

I wrote this almost immediately after having finished reading The Golden Orphans. It’s only late in the book the interesting meaning of the title becomes clear. A relatively short and unpredictable read that packs quite a punch. I chose to read and review The Golden Orphans based on a copy supplied by damppebbles and the author.

About the Author Gary Raymond is a novelist, critic, editor and broadcaster. THE GOLDEN ORPHANS is about ideas that preoccupy me as a writer, and, away from writing (if that is possible) things that just preoccupy me as a person (same thing, really).

Genre tropes might mean structural conservatism, but it can also mean you have a stable framework within which you can really shake things up. Although The Golden Orphans is set in the present day the story hinges on the events of the past (although I found the history of Cyprus as presented here is fairly simplistic and somewhat inaccurate).

The Golden Orphans would be a really great holiday read – small enough to put in your suitcase, but one that will keep you entertained. An all-round good concept for a book, I just wish it was slightly longer, so the ending didn’t feel so rushed.
