I love Nick Harkaway - the man is a literary god, and my new favourite writer. The character of the sergeant in this book reminded me of Sam Vines of Discworld fame when Terry Pratchett was at his best and from me that's about as high as praise can get. Were it not by Harkaway, I would certainly not have read a book about a retired soldier turned vigilante on an island rife with corruption - not my cup of tea at all, but I am so glad I did. I'm not a fan of action books or movies, but I love the characterisation, the writing style and the sheer wonderfulness of this book so much that I even enjoyed the actiony bits. I'm not related to the writer in any way (we've never met) but were I not already happily married, and if I thought I had any chance, I would so marry this man in a heartbeat, that's how much I love his books.
