A terrific read,
This review is from: Heliopolis (Paperback)
I was given this out of the blue. I know nothing about the author and am not a traditional fiction reader. But it was great surprise. Well written, nicely plotted and with just enough unusual info and happenings to kep it well ahead of the cliche trap. If you need a non brain-shrinking way to wile away a few precious rweading hours, you could do a great deal worse than this.

What amazingly faint praise: 'If you need a non brain-shrinking way to while away a few precious reading hours, you could do a great deal worse than this. ...' that's below the belt! But my question is: how much worse could you do? Not much. The novel might have been better cut up as features for High Life magazine. Despite the superficial sparkle this book is thin on ideas and development, relying instead on juxtaposition.
