Decent story but unreadable
on 21 January 2014
I like this author and I have defended him against complaints of bad punctuation, grammar and syntax, but this book is just a step too far. Whole batches of the text are missing and this gets worse as the book progresses.
I was actually expecting it to be another of the excellent Inspector Rase novels but it is completely different. Basically, it recounts a Britain some three months after the nation's entire power has been irreparably wiped out by a freak magnetic storm. As a story, it does have potential but unfortunately, not to the extent that I was prepared to persevere having to guess what might be missing from the text.
I got to 42% and gave up.
