This is in my top five favourite books. I picked it up at a hotel in Dorset of the same name and have never looked back as it is splendid in every way possible- the story is an action-packed thrill ride that doesn't get tarnished by any amount of re-reading. The end hits me like a train every time, and the thrill doesn't diminish even with prior knowledge of what will happen. There are some pacing issues around the 3/4 mark but other than that, it's the perfect way to spend a couple of days.
So heart breaking!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
