Different indeed-- and unputdownable
11 May 2001 - Published on Amazon.com
This book's cover description says it's "a different kind of novel," and that is exactly correct. The Long Reach comes as close as anything I've ever read to conveying the idea of time as a simultaneous (rather than linear) experience. Susan Davis does this with a set of characters that move through a complex, interwoven mesh of events across several lifetimes. And she does this with prose that never tangles up or lets you down, and in the end, it all fits together just perfectly. Anyone who has read the Seth books by Jane Robers will connect with this little gem of a novel. It will linger in your mind for a long time.
