Not a lot to say about this novel. Easy to read, easy to follow, easy to digest. Likable main character that isn't all that deep but nonetheless you want to see where he's going next. No real twist, unfortunately.
I can't say whether this novel would

I'm quite entranced with this novel/novella trilogy. Delaney as an author is often more focused on his ideas/concepts than his plot or characters. This one, while it still contains his customary focus on the former, is much more plot-based and easier ...more

I am wholly am ambivalent to this novel. It was entertaining, quick-paced and had intriguing characters, where at the same time it was a little dull, there was no sense of time passing, and the characters were flat. This may seem contradictory, but I ...more

This book was predictable, boring and melodramatic. Unfortunately, it starts off very strong and thus tricks you into reading further, with Tom being an interesting and mysterious character, Isabel tough and a little unorthodox, and Janus' secluded a ...more

I've always loved Yeats since being introduced to his work in university (in fact, I have "No Second Troy" framed on my wall in my guestroom, along with some of my other favorite poems by other poets). As I was heading to Ireland on the 20th I decide ...more

I got 100 pages in and had to give up - not something I usually do, especially with a novel that wasn't poorly written. Perhaps it was the language or that I had no idea what time period it was set in. Upon reading some reviews apparently it's set in ...more

I both enjoyed reading this book but also found it tedious - often experiencing both in the same paragraph. Possibly because it was well-written, intelligent and honest, but I find memoirs to be a rather narcissistic undertaking, especially when they ...more

Adapting Fairy Tales is all too common today, given not only all the novels, but the Disney live-action movies but the (awesome) show Once Upon A Time. And I'm not complaining, as I love Once and I've always enjoyed adaptations or classic stories/nov ...more
