5.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing, challenging and moving, 12 Feb. 2010
By 
This review is from: Your Face Tomorrow 1: Fever and Spear: Fever and Spear v. 1 (Your Face Tomorrow Trilogy) (Paperback)
This book appears to be of the "love it or hate it" variety judging from the other reviews. Personally I loved it, and very soon became utterly addicted. I was originally drawn to the series because of the basic premise (and the intriguing title,) and I would probably have settled for a thriller/spy novel along those lines but this is so much more. I found the elliptical style endlessly engaging and the discussions concerning life and relationships, history and observation, thoroughly rewarding. With this in mind, the book could have easily become a sterile intellectual study by someone with their eye on a literary prize but what did surprise me was how very moving it was at times. Marias has an honest and insightful grasp of the often painful nature of life and relationships, and I feel that many readers might identify with some of the 'baggage' of the protagonist. I've just ordered part two and am recommending this to any of my acquaintances who will listen.
