Customer Review

on 26 May 2007
Perhaps because I over anticipated the new book, ordering it as soon as Amazon began to list its publication date, but I was hugely disappointed.

Hill is a tremendous author, but in this book I constantly felt he was trying to be too clever, too literate, and it lost my attention.

I really had to work hard to finish the book, and was pleased that it did seem to come into its own in the final quarter of the tale, however I am used to much more gripping tales from Hill and felt this was nowhere near as good as his previous outings for the characters. Dialogues of the Dead gripped me from page to page and I finished the book in days. With this story I had to force myself to read it and it took me nearly a month to work my way through it.

Whilst I would recommend Hill to anyone keen for a good read, this would not be the book I would suggest they read first.
