Read from October 21 to November 15, 2011

A very interesting story - I enjoyed the unique setting and plot. Fergus is an excellent writer and the book had a nice easy flow. He has a wonderful way of describing the scenes, and this is one of the few books where I could very vividly inmagine the sights and sounds of the scenes and really have a sense of being there.

I really liked Ned, the main character, but some of the other characters and their dialouge drove me insane! Their somewhat "witty" banter, particularly after having been captured and threatened with imminent death, seemed so ridiculous. The superfluous use of "sweetheart", "darling", or "old sport" was almost physical painful - I cringed each time I saw those words!

I would definately read another book by the author, because I really did enjoy his story-telling...

Kyla Skinner I agree with everything you said! It was very entertaining, but very, very unrealistic - and I was confused by the comic feel to the dramatic events. You should read his other book, 1000 White Women, I really enjoyed that one.

Jenny I will! I really do like his writing, just not Margaret and Tolley!
