I found this book really engrossing. Ludo is such a unique character, and I couldn't get his story or the city out of my head. The story is very subtle—the author doesn't try to hit you over the head. Scudamore keeps to the essentials and doesn't play things up for shock value. There's always a bit of light in the dark moments. While some might find the writing occasionally flat, I felt that the tone worked really well with Ludo's sense of detachment. I would definitely recommend this book, and I look forward to seeing what he writes next.
