I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The characters were believable and one could get attached to them. The plot was well worked out and the clues dribbled out and kept me guessing. The reader was ideal, he really got under the skin of the hero (the first person narrator)
I was intrigued as I had previously read a Donnelly book before and I am interested in the French Revolution so I thought I'd give it a go. After initially thinking I'd made a mistake and wondered into a morbid teenage trash book I found that in no time at all I was completely sucked into the story.
I soon became obsessed much like the central character Andi with listening to find out more. I drove through and from work listening to it, I stayed up until 1 in the morning listening to it - it gripped me that much.
Unlike other books in the genre I truly like and empathise with the characters and it is so beautifully written that you feel like you are actually there with them. The book is about obsession and addiction and Donnelly manages to pull off something truly amazing by getting this across by drawing in the readers in the same way as Andi and Alex.
