Compelling novel. Even more compelling ending.,
This review is from: Warsaw (Kindle Edition)
Richard Foreman's black and dry sense of humour turns into full blown melancholy in this serious but readable novel. Anyone expecting a Raffles story or something similar should not read this book.
Warsaw made me a little uncomfortable at times and also depressed me in places but I hope like me you will be compelled to read on. The lead characters are particularly strong and you may want to have a tissue or two ready at the end. The final two chapters are superb.
Warsaw seems by far to be the author's longest book (it could have been edited a tiny bit in placed). It's probably his most important or philosophical book too. The research and history seem sound, but Foreman never forgets he's writing a novel.
