It is one of my greatest sadnesses, as of about two hours ago when I finished this book, that I am not as good as Christopher Priest. For he is bloody good and an absolute madman.

Twenty pages into this book, he rewrote the Second World War. Then he rewrote it again, I forget how many times but it was lots. I got to the first twist and immediately couldn't put the book down for nearly six hours. I think I must have read about two thirds of it in one day. He writes very well, and the plot and the writing are both very easy to get caught up in. My kind of story.
