Customer Review

on 13 September 2002
The simplest thing to say about this book is that I felt genuinely sad when it came to an end -- I wanted to go reading about Logan Mountstuart. Through Boyd's skill he becomes an extremely believeable and very empathetic character, subtly changing voice as his outlook on life matures and deepens. The way that Mountstuart's declining years are handled is particularly good. This could have been mawkish and clumsy in the hands of a lesser writer given the roller-coaster of his youth and middle age but it is so skilfully done that it is easily the best part of the tale. A wonderful story.
