Beautiful, moving, magical, accessible, poetic, human... I'm sure I can come up with more very positive adjectives to describe my new favourite de Bernieres book. Definitely one to read and re-read again and again.

The fact that many people seem to be raving about this book makes me wonder what it was I missed. I'm not saying I didn't like the book - I did. But I just liked it. I didn't love it, it didn't change my life or tell me anything new or make me think. ...more
