Oh my! Well I loved The Book of Dead Days (it took me a while to get into his style, but worth the push), so I was eager to read Blood Red, Snow White since I know quite a bit about the Revolution from my History GCSE. The book has inspired me to travel through Russia and I was absolutely in love with the new style he's adopted, definately influenced by Ransome, but gladly it was blatantly a "Sedgwick".
I was there in the middle of the revolution with the fantastic imagery bringing every detail to life around me. Such a fantastic grasp of the situations but he also made the world revolve around the main character, which can't have been easy, pushing an entire revolution into 300 little pages.
