Close but no cigar,
This review is from: The Illumination of Merton Browne (Hardcover)
I was very impressed by the start of this book but as it progresed I found my interest waning as it became more and more unrealistic.The ending was predictable and it wouldn't have surprised me if it had concluded with the words, 'and they all lived happily ever after.'
On a more positive note some of the characters were superb and Shaw's style of writing is good.The ingredients were all there but something got lost in the mix.I look forward to the second novel.
