"Written in a wonderfully economical prose, alternatively bristling and resonating with suggestiveness." (Australian Book Review)
A strange and unsatisfactory book. The author prepares a canvas on a heroic scale, but then largely populates it with trivialities. The writing style is excellent, as is the reader, and the idea behind the story is promising. However, the main character seems to be one of those people who are peripherally associated in momentous events without becoming involved in them. I was left feeling dissatisfied, given how much more the author could done with these characters.
A reader from day 1 now a listener too! Remember honesty in a review does help you decide, even if you don't agree!
the story flows, with information about the characters, setting, and situations in an engaging and interesting story that continued to keep you interested.
Set in Australia and Armenia, this novel is beautifully written. The bleak and wild landscapes compliment the characters as if one is a reflection of the other. Paced neither slow nor fast, enough action takes place to keep you interested. Reccomended.
I loved this book. The writing was interesting and engaging. I loved the narration it really brought the story alive.
