Uncomfortable. Most readers will feel unsettled while and after reading Jesse Ball’s novel titled, The Divers’ Game. Using fine prose, Ball pulls readers into examining a society in which violence against the other is not only commonplace, it is expected. Is this who we are becoming? Where is compassion? This short book packs a wallop and I can’t say how long it takes for the unsettled feeling to pass, because for me, it remains.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
