    5. I really liked this book, this author has a great gift of letting your imagination picture exactly what s going on and as it s set in a time period I like reading about, that made it all the enjoyable It s fiction, so not everything is accurate ie locations etc but I didn t feel that mattered at all The reason it has 4 stars from me and not 5 is because I loved his other book called the cyclist just a little bit

    6. ExcellentCould not put it down Also read the cyclist another very good read.well written and believable Plan to read of his books.

    7. A five star bookA good read you want to go on forever but you read it faster because you want to know the end.
