An unexpected, but very welcome, pleasure, 31 Mar. 2011
I purchased this for 70p with no great expectation. "A cheap, ordinary read for the journey into London," I thought. How wrong I was.
Déjà Vu is a slick, gripping and brilliantly written piece of science-fiction that deserves much wider attention than it has had so far. The main characters are strong, believable and likeable and the plot unfolds at breakneck speed towards a thrilling conclusion.
In all honesty, this would be a good value read even at full price. At 70p it is an absolute steal and I can't help but feel that, given the novel was written in 2005, Ian Hocking has missed the opportunity to keep people interested in his work, especially the continuing adventures of Saskia Brandt, by getting the next book in the series to market more quickly than appears to be the case.
This very minor niggle aside, congratulations must go to the undoubtedly talented author for a fantastic debut novel. Now all I have to do is wait impatiently for his next.
