Double vision is almost too appropriate a title for Pat Barker's strongly written, oddly constructed new novel. The book's perspectives shadow each other, with an effect of overlapping rather than complementarity.

Double vision is almost too appropriate a title for Pat Barker's strongly written, oddly constructed new novel. It isn't clear what is subject and what counter-subject, who in the story plays a leading role and who is in the supporting cast

Double Vision is Pat Barker's thought-provoking Booker Prize-winning novel of modern warfare. Provocative, intense and deeply moving, Double Vision is a powerful story of one man's quest to find redemption amidst the horror of twenty-first-century war. Returning to Afghanistan after his photographer friend is killed by a sniper, war reporter Stephen Sharkey seeks release from his nightmares in an England seemingly at peace with itself. Questioning man's inhumanity to man both abroad and at home, and whether love really can be the great redeemer, Double Vision is a searing novel of conflict in modern times. 'Full of brooding tension. Barker is one of our most significant contemporary novelists' Daily Telegraph 'Barker writes superbly. The reader is drawn on, from page to page' Economist 'Barker has a quite extraordinary ability to combine complexity and clarity and to make both seem parts of the same whole' Sunday Times 'The characters grab hold at the beginning and never loosen their grip. Barker holds us by the sheer beauty of her writing' Financial Times

Comments:

Sagda
Beautiful exploration of the effects of trauma on the lives and minds of the survivors.
Bulace
A good read; engaging story-line. Main romantic angle a little far-fetched. Barker keeps her high standard up. Some quite tense moments.
