This well known writer is new to me, but I am totally delighted with the first of his books that I read. If you like literary illusions, wry humor, and a deft psychological novel, you will love this book. I'm now reading Death's Jest Book and so far, it's just as good as Good Morning, Midnight.
This is a delightful book, well read, humorous as well as informative, vivid descriptions of people and places. I feel as if I've been there. Kept my attention throughout. I was sorry when he had to return from Australia. I wish he'd go to New Zealand and Fiji next.
One of the reviewers who posts here has said repeatedly that listening to HIll's books is addictive and I have come to agree with him. I love listening to these books which continue to have delightful characters. They are also well plotted, humorous, suspenseful and intelligent. The reader of the last three Hill books is one of the VERY best. I wish he would redo some of the books about which other readers have complained. Evelyn
I am not usually a fan of historical fiction, butI thoroughly enjoyed this gripping novel, which seemed to be historically quite accurate. It kept my interest for almost its entire length, but I must admit that it got repetitive in the last quarter. Nonetheless, I'm going to read the sequel, after I've taken a short break. The vision of that beautiful cathedral that was built against the odds, stays with me.
