    An extraordinary debut novel of love that survives the fires of hell and transcends the boundaries of time. The narrator of The Gargoyle is a very contemporary cynic, physically beautiful and sexually adept, who dwells in the moral vacuum that is modern life. As the book opens, he is driving along a dark road when he is distracted by what seems to be a flight of arrows.

    Story

    I listened to the Gargoyle as it was recommended to me by a colleague. This was one of the most interesting books I have listened to in a very long time. It is a story of survival, love, friendship, and healing. I heard that the author took 7 years to do the research on this book and you can tell by the details in the story.

    The "burned man" is befriended by Marianne Engle in the hospital. He was contemplating suicide while she is there being treated in the psychiatry unit. She is convinced that she and the burned man have known each other in a past life. They develop a wonderful friendship and eventually fall in love. The book goes on to describe two parallel stories--one of Marianne and the burned man in what their lives were like in the early 13th century and their current story.

    There are so many stories within the stories which are mainly tragic love stories. Each of them serves to teach a lesson, and all become intertwined at some point.

    The book ends with the two parallel stories coming together in the end.

    The narrator was exceptional, and I loved his ability to speak the different languages. It adds so much when you can hear the words rather than just reading them on a piece of paper.

    I hope this isn't the last book that Andrew Davidson writes. I look forward to the next one.

    I would recommend this book to all of my friends.
