This review is from: A Man Against a Background of Flames (Kindle Edition)
This is a hugely enjoyable read as an action packed, page turning historical thriller. But, at the same time it shows the folly of religious extremism, affirming my belief in the authority and power of a moral code without the need for a God or religion per se.
Demonstrating the very best of human nature by the use of warm, fallible, consistently believable characters, Paul Hoggart draws you into the interplay between intensely human situations, backstabbing academic politics and the madness of fundamentalism with a warm wit. It is thought provoking, humorously irreverent and completely relevant for an increasingly secular society which can feel battered and patronised by the religious right.
