Publisher's Summary

Smoke is a gripping tale that bridges commercial, literary and genre fiction - a sweeping epic with the thrilling edge of The Secret History or The Passage and the magic of Philip Pullman's Dark Materials trilogy or Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell.

Smoke opens in a private boarding school near Oxford, but history has not followed the path known to us. In this other past, sin is a physical attribute, visible to all, and children are born carrying the seeds of evil within them. It is in this school, surrounded by the sons of the wealthy and well connected, that two boys called Thomas and Charlie discover that the world of smoke, soot and ash is not as it seems, for sin has a secret history and virtue a politics both intricate and murderous.

The two boys soon leave the confines of the school to enter into a struggle for the very soul of their nation. But will their own souls survive unscathed?

    What made the experience of listening to Smoke the most enjoyable?

    I thought the narrator really brought the story alive - he was excellent.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the relationship between the 3 main characters and how much they supported each other through everything.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    When Livia kisses them both right at the end.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not really, although the bits with Mowgli were very sad.


    Any additional comments?

    This is one of those books that I think is even better to listen to than to read; the narration really brings it alive. Brilliant!
