Better than Brown - but not much,
This review is from: The Fire Gospel (Hardcover)
If you've read Crimson Petal and were looking for something of equal quality, you'll be disappointed: if you're look for an introduction to Faber's work, go there first - and don't come back! CP is thoroughly involving and show's what Faber can do.
Reminded me a lot of Irving Wallace's 'The Word' which I read when I was in my teens (first qualification) and thought was great. Ended up as a TV mini-series (second qualification) with David Janssen, but trust me, the book is very thought provoking.
Which The Fire Gospel is not.
