5.0 out of 5 stars
Amazing, enthralling, genre defying, 26 April 2010
This is book is an amazing work in fantasy (and it can only be described as fantasy) which melds our world and history with that of dreams and the fruits they can bear. There are no magicical battles and dragons but there are amazingly penned characters and a twisting plot which at once enthralls, amazes and confuses and no shortage of fantasy imaging and creatures. The best alternative fantasy book I have ever read and possibly the best fantasy book full-stop.
