by Clive gripped me from the start. It is what seems
to be a small-scale tale, yet over the course of the
book, mushrooms into a bunch of directions. Every character
is accounted for along the way, every dialogue was genuine
and real to everyone, and the ending was worth the wait.
I loved the fact that Clive created a world that did
not have anything to do with and or was like anything
else he has written. The one down side- and the only
one- was the reoccurring use of the word din. It was
totally plausible each time, yet its constant use almost
had me wishing I had counted all the times it was used,
so I would have a total tally at the end. Having said
that, a great book with a breadth that seemed to have
no bounds. Recommended.
