5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic and not a little moving., 1 Feb 2009
This review is from: Tokyo (Paperback)
I've just finished this book, after flying through it in a matter of days (not easy with kids/work demanding your attention too!)

I judge a book by how quickly I turn the pages, coupled with a lack of desire for it to be finished. This book has both things in spades.

Essentially two interlinked stories which are seperated in time, with chapters short enough for it to be classed as a 'page-turner'. Both stories hold up very well on their own, I agree with a previous reviewer that the historical part is better, as it is in diary form the characters automatically need (and get) less development.

In the 'modern' story, Grey's past isn't quite delved into enough for me. I understood Jason, but can understand why others won't. The 'baddies' are sufficiently developed to hold the interest right to the end.

All in all, a fantastic read. It is moving, even to a cold-hearted bloke like myself.
