Publisher's Summary

On its way to the Galápagos Islands, a light aircraft ditches into the sea. Daniel Kennedy faces an impossible choice – should he save himself or the woman he loves? In a parallel narrative, it is 1917 and Daniel’s great grandfather Andrew is preparing to go over the top at Passchendaele. He, too, will have his courage tested, and must live with the moral consequences of his actions.

Back in London the atheistic Daniel is wrestling with something his “cold philosophy” cannot explain – something unearthly he thought he saw while swimming for help in the Pacific. But before he can make sense of it, the past must collapse into the present, and both he and Andrew must prove themselves capable of altruism, and deserving of forgiveness.

    "Brilliant"

    I was looking for books by this narrator who is excellent and I was totally enthralled from start to finish. Well written, interesting and very different from the type of books I usually buy but I will now be looking for more from Nigel Farraday.

    "Started slow but loved it in the end"

    enjoyed the tone of the narrators proper voice. Good story line slow start but loved the way the story weaved it's way thru time periods connecting them all in the end.

    Story
    "A bit confusing at times"
    Would you listen to The Blasphemer again? Why?

    Possibly, mainly to try and make sense of some of the scenes.


    Any additional comments?

    Although I listened intently to the whole book, I still felt a little confused about some things and I just did not get the one big thread that ran through it so that the ending left me somewhat confused. I was pleased that on the whole, the WW1 research had been carried out well so that was a plus in my book. I just wish that not every WW1 book would feature something that happened in very, very small numbers because it seems to be "topical" but this time it did have an interesting twist. I think I would actually like to read this next to see if it does make a little more sense!
