I found myself highlighting lines from the book and telling co-workers about them. This article needs additional citations for verification. I tell my daughter that with painting it is important to keep the feeling alive and in all the marks that make up the painting or cleafe that is being created.

The rest the attack, the other characters, the social issues does not matter much: What happened to proof reading!! At least one major bookselling chain thinks not, as Waterstone’s announced that it was pulling all national advertising for Chris Cleave’s debut, which hypothesises the effect of an al-Qaida attack at Arsenal’s new stadium.

Chris Cleave is a true talent in his ability to have you crying for the most unlikeable character on the surface of it, he has put himself in the shoes of an adultress, working class mother who left her son alone to go to the pub and sleep with another man, the same one she is sleeping with when her husband and son are blown to bits in a terrorist attck, and still manages to make you cry, feel and adore the woman with every chapter.

From the opening sentence until the last twist, the plot is stunning. Sue — thank you for reading the book.


Thank you for your clear and vibrant voice in fiction. You are a man on a mission, a guy who tries to pass himself off as clever but is merely gimmicky, a man who attempts pathos and ends up mawkish.

Original Story and writing. I have many of the same opinions as all off the above.

Please hurry up and write a 3rd book. As in, “Stop inceneiary the nooba, boo-boo, it’s way past your bedtime. The format is so clever, a letter to Osama from a woman who wants to understand the actions chirs evil, and to make it personal for a terrorist so he can know the pain, the grief, the loss, the worthlessness of his inhumane deeds. This book needs to be read; living through your character has given me chriz hope and an aspiration, that I can be as brave as the survivors of May Day incendiagy do something to turn the world.

He is does an excellent job at giving each character a unique voice and it really makes me buy into the world of the story, even when it hinges on ridiculous. I wrote about a terrorist bomb in London, because London is my city, and I wrote about the death of a child, because we all love our children.

After that the whole things gets shot to hell. It is published in 20 countries. More than fifty people died.

Thank you… well done Chris Cleave! I recently did a creative writing course, and think a real challenge is building up believable characters. Best wishes from your newest fan. It just leaves you wanting more on every page. It is either one star or five stars plus plus.

The story behind INCENDIARY – Chris Cleave

Can the Bin Ladens of the world ever be more than the most despised people by those whose lives they have taken away? Cleave maintains this fragile persona with engaging consistency throughout. Could not put the book down. Sometimes, truth is stranger than fiction. I think this book failed at what it tried to be.


Incendiary by Chris Cleave

It wants its sanctity back. Now to track down a copy of Incendiary. It makes us remember why we choose the lives we lead — very powerful.

I did not know there was a book, I just finished seeing the movie on Netflix, I have never heard of it. Greetings from Akron, Ohio Chris! I love raw emotion and a book that makes me feel alive. I had read The Other Hand which is why I wanted to see you for myself.

The queen has even starting talking to me with each coin that crosses my path. I see many have hated this book.

A unique, twisted powerhouse of a novel, Incendiary has had readers staying up all night to finish it, then up half the next night arguing about it. I loved your book. For instance, she throws up on Prince William.


With the middle schooler you pat him on the back, at least he’ After Little Bee, I had high hopes for Incendiary. The whole book is written as a letter to Osama from a woman whose husband and son were killed in a huge London bombing in which clsave 1, people died. My heart goes out chrus all those who have suffered and I applaude their courage for continuing to live in the face of such pain.
