Read in November, 2011

I enjoyed it. Took a bit to get into it, but the story pulls you in. Entertaining, but not amazing.

I did find my first "dog barked" line in this, though! (since reading the article: http://www.slate.com/articles/arts/cu...)

Page 279:

He passed through the gates and made his way across the open area that supported the fort from the civilian buildings. At this time of night the town was little more than a huddle of angular shapes illuminated by the occasional glimmer of a torch. Somewhere among the buildings, a dog barked. There was a faint sound of a baby crying. He heard the approach of voices and stepped sideways onto the road's shoulder. Three men ambled past, too deep in a disagreement about horse racing to notice him. When they had gone, the street was empty. Ruso stepped back onto the paved surface and tried not to imagine what might be happening to a girl who was wandering the streets at this time of night.
