This review is from: Your Face Tomorrow 1: Fever and Spear: Fever and Spear v. 1 (Your Face Tomorrow Trilogy) (Paperback)
I thought for the first 20 or so pages that I might not complete this book. The sentences are very complex, and it takes some getting used to. When I appreciated that it is a novel to be enjoyed more slowly, not a simple page-turning time killer, then I started to enjoy it. Before I was halfway through I was completely gripped, and the episode when the narrator spends most of a night researching in a library is an thrilling as any other novel I've read. It is a truly magnificent book. It has stayed with me long after I've finished it. I am holding back the pleasure of starting the second volume, which I am really looking forward to, while I fully absorb everything from the first.
