Customer Review

on 17 July 2011
I wondered what could possibly follow the Stieg Larsson trilogy. This can. It is about many layers and generations of love. Once I started reading, I did not want to stop. Its particular emotional resonance for me was the early story's significant places: Aden (I was part of the British army's ignominious withdrawal in 1967); Asmara (I worked there for seven years in an itinerant advisory role, while with the UN in New York); Edinburgh (my home town) and Addis Ababa, the centre of the story (where I lived and worked for 18 months, feeling the elation and anguish of blind love). Then towards the end, Rome featured (where I proposed to my fiancé in July 2010 and bought a ring of engagement, only for her to end the love nine months later, by email!). As to the book itself? Frankly, just read it. It is very, very highly recommended! In addition, I seem to be taking the view that books which prompt thoughts on one's own life are worthy of extra thought. `Hero' was one example. This is most definitely another!
