An incredibly moving and devastating story. It’s rare to come across a dense historical novel that is so engaging and easy to swallow (although this is far from a light read.) The setting and historical details are woven in perfectly—it’s clear McCann knows what she’s talking about, but she doesn’t overwhelm you with trivial details or floods of description. The characters and relationships are believable and well-developed, and the narrator is easy frighteningly easy to sympathize with. This novel left me disturbed, unsatisfied, and heartbroken, but it was a thoroughly enjoyable journey and I highly recommend it.

One of the most engrossing, devastating books I've ever read. Maria McCann is a scrupulous researcher, so you can trust her historical references, and yet such a gifted, powerful writer, that this book--and the journey of its antihero and his quest to essentially rejoin the human race--has stayed with me, nearly 8 years after I first read it.

One of the best books I have read for a very long time. Works on all sorts of levels but you may have to work hard at it for a while. Quite strange and disturbing but very worth while.
