    Interesting, but I expect more from Kay

    After reading many of Kay's previous novels, I had high expectations for this book. I was disappointed though by its lack of depth. Characters from his previous novels do surface, but I felt like those who had not read the other novels would miss out on a lot of the nuances of the novel. The author seems to try a little to hard to force himself into the mindset of a teenage boy, and the effect was detrimental to the story. It felt like every other line the boy was listening to some mainstream band on his ipod. The plot was interesting though, and I found myself most interested in the characters from the past, and not very connected to the main characters of the present. All in all, a good read, but not his best.

    maybe good for young adult genre

    I expected a more intricate and exciting Roman/Celt historical drama. Character development was not strong on the past side. Writing style which seemed to help character development on the present side unfortunately did not suit my taste, which though might appeal to younger readers (teenagers). But of course "The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon" by Steven King would have by far excelled as a young adult read.

    Not my usual fare, but I tore through it.

    This is a Highlander-like story set in Provence. I was hooked by the historical fiction aspect as well as the setting, and the book moves very fast. It's odd that I am not rating it higher considering how fast I tore through it, but as much as I enjoyed it, I found it a little lacking. Consider it a good, light escape, but don't expect literary genius.

    A good rainy day read

    The plot was good but a bit weak. The characters were interesting and there were enough (most predictable) twists to the story line. I'm happy it was a bargain book, I would have been upset if I had paid full price. Still, it was a perfect one day read in the stormy weather we were having. This was my first purchase from this author.
