Am right in the middle of this one and have even set aside the other
books that I'm reading in order to double the pleasure of savoring his prose. By no means is this passive reading. Pears requires that you think and absorb as you read as opposed to my "guilty pleasure writers"
but, more on them later.

As the plot evolves one mystery leads relevantly and neatly into another. No character, with the exception of the protagonist, is what he or she appears to be. This may sound trite but am wondering; is Pears taking us down another blind ally with the narrator as well?

An additional pleasure of this novel is that Pears forces you to "slow it down" and enjoy the pleasure of his prose. He is slyly insightful as he portrays a host of nationalities who are depicted during several time periods.

Am genuinely curious to read how he's going to tie up a multiplicity
of storylines as well as to find out... how did Stone "Fall"?

As for "guilty pleasure writers"; these include Stephenie Meyer, Linda Berdoll, Cara Black as well as some others who- interestingly enough- don't come to mind at the moment.
