Brilliant as usual! I have to say though, that the method of story telling was completely different than his usual, and I can't remember reading a book written in this interesting manner before. There is "the" story- told from each character's point of view. I can see that maybe the retelling of the same story several times might annoy some readers, but I found it fascinating. Each character has his own take on a situation and reacts accordingly. Reading the story felt just like doing a jigsaw puzzle. My daughter is reading the same book now and did say that she was confused. I told her, as I found out, that if you just keep reading- the knots will work themselves out.
Based in Bristol, England between WWI and WWII. The story itself is interesting, and fortunately the sequel will be out in just a couple of weeks.
