I have intentionally left a few days between finishing 'Nightwatching' and writing my review, as the book is one of those rare finds in contemporary literature where I found myself left with an imprint of the characters and plot long after I had switched off my Kindle.
However, 'Nightwatching' was a slow starter - the best analogy I have is to compare the book with an emerging butterfly. The start of the book is when the butterfly is poking its head out of the chrysalis - like the way in which Jo

Having a day off I picked up John's book and started to read thinking I would take a few hours before I had to get myself outside to start getting wood ready for a rapidly approaching Montana winter, but I find it is now well past mid-night. Its been a long time since I spent a day reading a book cover to cover,(so to speak.)

I found that the author has a rather unnecessary sesquipedalian style of writing but is also not descriptive enough.. Does that make sense? Hahah! I found myself re-reading alot of sentences and going back a few pages on occasion, feeling they did not make sense. Over all, I enjoyed this book. Iv been on a hunt to find novels similar to that of Brendan Duffys - house of echoes, and this is as close as I have come. The ending was rather Anticlimactic and seemed rushed..
