Immortal is one of those rare original stories that I can never seem to find enough of; I was swept away by it. When I first picked this book up, I'd been winding my way through a Nobel winner's masterpiece. But I dropped Orhan and left the party with Adam the Immortal, smitten from my first glance of him.

The brilliance of this book is in the way Adam's story weaves its way through so many different times and places. He's in Pompeii at Vesuvius's eruption, modern day New York, medieval France and a 1920's speak easy and there is not a single hiccup from one time to another. He tells his story perfectly out of sequence, revealing the details that the reader needs to put everything together in the end. The story moves forward seamlessly and each moment collected from Adam's past fits itself perfectly into place as the story hits its climax.

I'm looking forward to reading more from this author.
