This is a relatively short novel that dips into the lives of several characters in a rainy Scottish holiday park, highlighting the boredom and thought processes of everyone from a young engaged couple, several kids tormenting each other, angst-ridden teenagers, bored housewives, and older couples just getting by. It is so well-written and completely engrossing, but I have to admit to being a bit disappointed by the narrative, and the ending. I thought there would have been more of a connection between the disparate stories, something to weave them all together. But I enjoyed the process of reading and will look for more from this author.
