This is a delightful book; an interesting premise, perfectly paced, and written with great assurance.
Beware, though, that it (along with many of the best novels), is a little slow to get started. I read 9% and came very close to giving up. I vacillated for some months between deleting and continuing, before eventually deciding it was worth half an hour to see if it could gain traction.
I'm so glad I decided as I did. It would have been a great (but unknown) mistake to have abandoned this delightful novel.
I hope the author produces more works of similar quality.
