Rating: 5 out of 5

Well that was excellent. A proper page turner, the kind of story that captured my attention and had me completely engaged. Great characters, great setting, transportative. I felt scared, anxious, sad.

It may seem like it’s a big book, and it is, but it is an easy read and a fast paced story.

I came across it via goodreads while looking for a book that had some form of diversity among the characters. I’ve been doing a short ‘Understanding diversity and inclusion’ course and as part of it realised how un-diverse my reading habits tend to be. I believe the quote that George R.R. Martin Coined “A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies.” “The man who never reads lives only one.” and so feel I should be adding further variety to my choices.
