Wow, what a book!
This is the best novel Adrian Plass has written. The prose is less clunky than Plass's other 'serious' novels, yet retains the insightful, light-yet-deep humour of the diaries series. I was laughing at some points and actually in tears at others (not something that regularly occurs)!. He was able to balance the hilarious, knifeblade insight into the human condition that is found in the diaries series with a real depth of feeling. We get to know the characters along the way as if they are our old friends. My only criticism is that it was too short. I'd have loved it to be longer!
This is one of the most inspiring books I have ever come across, this is a spiritual fictional thriller that offers fast paced action as well as amazing insights in to how the world could be. This story is based around a manucsript that was written thousands of years ago by the Mayans in Peru and in it they have predicted how the world and humans will develop spiritually in the 20th and 21st Centuries, it is a really lovely story and always makes me smile when I think about it. It will give you hope that the world may find peace and harmony at some stage!
