I heard of JM's book though a review of Black Cabs (his latest book) in the Times. I purchased all 3 of his books and proceeded to work my way though in the comfort of the 07:31 hersham to Warterloo. At first I was slightly disapointed by the stlye of writing, sometimes feeling that there was no depth behind the characters and the expressions and forms used were unoriginal. However, once into the second chapter, I knew this was going to be a great book. The is a charming sence that anything is possible in this book. I really opens your mind and allows your creative/daydreaming side to come out. Yet, having said this, there is nothing that goes on that is actually implausable. Indeed it is clear that a lot of research has gone on technically. The feel-good factor really shows itself and has you gripping the book willing the truth to be heard. In short, with out spoiling the book, this is an excellent and enjoyable read. Whilst the plot sometimes seems predictable, for every scenario you predict there are 2 twists that will have you completely glued to the plot.
