Is it possible to be seduced by a book?
on 5 January 2012
I purchased the Kindle version of this book yesterday evening, finished it, bleary-eyed, at 6am this morning and - having slept for a little over five hours - am already rereading it!
Prepare to be transported by Banville's sumptuous prose in this fantastic philosophical rollercoaster. He has that utterly enviable way of making everything and everyone spring to life; images form effortlessly in your mind's eye, characters and places embed themselves as if they were your own memories - the mark of a true literary genius!
Simply superb, and absolutely deserving of a place on every reader's bookshelf.
