This review is from: Shattered Icon (Paperback)
I loved this book and cant wait to read more of Bill Napier's books. If you like fast paced intelligent and enjoyable books this is the one for you. I am sitting writing this review because its a good book and deserves a positive review.
I think the paragraphs and layout make for a fast paced read - if you love long enormous endless verbose philosophical flaccid dense paragraphs that go slowly thoroughly and tediously, indirectly and passively nowhere then this ISNT the book for you, and Finnegans Wake is always available!
If however you like pacey thrillers, that are enjoyable, written with vigour and enthusiasm, and show clever thinking and entertaining ideas, I would say buy and read this book. Its great stuff and well worth the money.
It has a great beginning, lyrical and evocative and the story races along with great speed with gripping ideas and wide ranging intelligent themes, from the ethos of Christianity, Elizabethan skullduggery, and what people may do for a tantalising view of some profound and life changing truth. Now thats what I want in a book - and I really loved it. I dont know what more you might want!!
This is a good thrilling read, a real pleasure and not a chore, with a pacey story that doesnt let up. Really its cracking stuff.
