Customer Review

on 7 October 2013
This is the second book I've read by Gareth P. Jones and everything that I loved about the first is still there. It amazes me how he can write a story told from so many character perspectives and, as a reader, you don't struggle to follow.

The writing is beautiful and really brings everything to life and the characters, oh my - how varied and fascinating, my particular favourite was Mr Hayman. Also Mondriat and Olwyn need a mention, especially Olwyn - clever. The ending to this book is so brilliant.

There are a lot of main characters in The Society of Thirteen and I think maybe there are a few too many. Don't get me wrong, they are really interesting and I'd probably be hard pressed to choose who shouldn't be in this book but I didn't care as much about Esther and Tom as I wanted and I'm wondering if that's because I too distracted by everyone else.

High enjoyable, mysterious and wonderful, The Society of Thirteen is a book well worth reading but if you asked me I'd still tell you to read Constable & Toop first.
