Customer Review

on 29 November 2001
Anyone with a love of words, books and literature--and who has a sense of humour--should love this novel. The word-play alone kept me well amused for the length of the story. Trying to categorise the type of story is difficult. It's sci-fi, but not so. Perhaps more a fantasy/reality mix that Phillip Pullman might recognise from his Dark Materials trilogy. I hope the machine central to the story is never built: wouldn't do to let Hannibal Lecter out on the world!
Despite a slight first-novelish woodenness to the pace of the story I'm greatly looking forward to the Next instalment (pun intended but you'll have to read the book to find out why).
