Spiegazioni
kaida46: I've never read anything like this, great fantasy, creative, unusual,descriptive, and an enjoyable ride.
Boand: The most original book I’ve read this year! A truly spellbinding, intriguing and tricksy narrative that never fails to draw you in to the magic of the narrator’s journey. The finale is totally unexpected, shocking and completely blindsided me. This is a book that I will definitely be reading again and that is something I very rarely do. I look forward to being engrossed once again in this glorious fantasy.

knerd.knitter: This year I discovered a love for the books of Haruki Murakami; I have yet to read one of his books that I don’t like, but this has been my favorite so far!

hipdeep: In the audio book version released by Planet Money - which is not as good as if professional actors had done it, but was a darn nice way to celebrate Public Domain Day nonetheless.

MichaelHodges, Boand
Spiegazioni
Boand: A brilliantly told thriller in the Bryant & May canon. Fowler has honed his narrative and characters to a truly sublime level in this addictive page turner. Possibly the last in the series, or perhaps not, the secrets revealed about London and the detective duo continue to enthral and surprise.

LyndaInOregon: Picoult's readers know by now to expect a twist at the end. But this one was so unexpected it literally left me with my mouth hanging open. On re-reading, however, the clues were there.
