Ooks at where life can take you when your expectations are greatOfficially endorsed by Amnesty International The Hypnotist was hailed by The Bookseller in their ‘Ones to Watch’ section as ‘gripping compelling storytelling with a powerful anti racist message?. I think this probably could have been a good story but it s so badly written It s disjointed and sloppy It even changes tense for a chapter The lessons it seeks to teach are very heavy handed and all it does is cheapen the writing Still my biggest problem is Jack Not only is he annoying as hell but the book beats you over the head with his Irishness but it s clear that very little research was done on Ireland If you can t accurately write an Irish protagonist don t do it

    While Anholt's writing is often enthralling I would be much interested to read the fictionalisation of antisemitism he had originally intended to write about Unlike his authorial note that ‘colour prejudice can work both ways’ it is imperative that children are taught to understand racism and particularly anti Black racism as historically rooted and systemically sustained All prejudice is wrong and anyone can be prejudiced towards an
