My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The first part of this story is totally ridiculous and my thoughts were that none of this could possibly ever happen. However, as the story unfolds, it becomes more and more plausible, until, eventually, I began to think that these events could really, actually happen. That is what I would call very clever story telling.
Paul Torday is an incredibly imaginative author. I liked this book very much indeed and would recommend it to any of my friends.
All that stopped me from awarding five stars was that it tended to ramble in places. In an action packed thriller, that can be most frustrating! Don’t let that put you off though. It is well worth reading.
