Read in July, 2010

Beyond doubt the best RH book I read so far! The atmosphere feels so authentic, despite a lead theme that paints a picture of a village with inhabitants that seem still in the 19th century at best. Hill makes it all somehow seem absolutely realistic; the mix of cavemen, vikings and oldfashion style manor owners. The main characters are so sympathetic yet so different, Hill proves a meticulous knowledge and background research in as widely separated fields as mathematics and theology and throws many pieces of interesting facts in the story, many of which later proves to be important for the continuing plot, and it does not feel artificial or farfetched at all. The clash between the two main characters is both very entertaining and funny and as well described in a loving way. The story, finally, is both convincingly told and most logical, and above all: extremely thrilling.
Since the book is quite easy to read I like to give it the best recommendation for all kind of readers!
