Customer Review

on 6 March 2014
I'm not going to go into the details of the plot. Too long, too complex and done better elsewhere. This book is a bit of an epic, charting one man's journey through life. It really had a hold on me when when reading it. Some of the passages are just pristine, glistening, perfect prose. Other sections seem deliberately less weighty and rich, so I got the feeling of a careful change in style, as the story required; on and off, plot vs description vs introspection. The plot is absolutely captivating and the author takes the time to properly draw out the characters along the way. For me, it's this attention to character which partly justifies the comparisons to Dickens I've read in some reviews. I loved this book and am sorry I had to finish it.
