Furst is a brilliant writer and he brings alive times
on 17 January 2016
Furst is a brilliant writer and he brings alive times, places and people who no longer exist in this modern world with a clarity that is second to none. This book and his other more recent books are not quite as good as his earlier books. The earlier books heroes and heroines were bit players in the events portrayed and it was more a story of them trying to survive the situations that had been forced on them and their survival to the end of the book was conclusion enough . The more recent books seem to make their heroes more important in the great scheme of things and their rewards are a more positive definitive ending.
