it was amazing
Read from June 22 to 24, 2012

Not every novel reads like the work of a "storyteller"; this one does. I found myself, antiquely, calling it a "yarn." It's an adventure that gets on with it: it's charming and propulsive. It's also balanced. There are surprising or odd phrases, but not too many. The characters do both surprising and banal things. An author in control: characters struggle, the writing doesn't.
