Shelf Awareness reviews “We Five”

Guy Intoci

Jeanette Zwart has reviewed Mark Dunn’s We Five for Shelf Awareness: 

Dunn’s structure is ingenious. He tells the story through five distinct voices, against five historic backdrops, but keeps his characters' names, personalities, families and dynamics constant. The result is a seamless narrative with a straightforward plot that hopscotches through time. The five voices and five eras also underscore themes of inevitable conflict between genders and generations, and the power of family and friendship. In Dunn’s telling, men justify all manner of violent behavior, often directed at women. However, women are not simply victims; they have the power to absolve men when the violence is warranted, and so Jane’s brother, who has killed in war and in defense of Jane, can be forgiven.
