I could just say it was ok. And not a word more.

But I add a few more.

I was bored reading facts about suffragettes movement (just before WWI) and about WWI. Not because I am not interested in it, but because there wasn't anything new to me. (I have read books, articles and watched documentaries.) The writer tried put many historical facts, which would be interesting for someone who don't know them. Yet, it is risky thing.

Review taken from Blog Post #109 in April 2011, after borrowing book from library.

Brilliant Surgeon, but a loner, Doctor Patrick O'Leary is returning home from St Thomas's Hospital when he gets caught up with a Votes For Women Demonstration in Westmin

As the night ends has to be one of the best books I have read this year, for me it's not as good as Distant images but it's still a fantastic read.
