I found The Apprentice by Lewis Libby by chance and since it looked interesting I decided to give it a try. The book is not "slow" in traditional terms of drawing out and over explaining things but there is little plot development and it feels more like you are reading a diary then a story. True it was hard to put down at times but with the end of each chapter you were not on the edge of your seat wondering what was going to happen next. Many mysteries arose during the story, most being left unanswered and no way to resolve then without the story containing more. The Apprentice was a new and original story just off mainstream that made it very interesting and a good read but made for a certain kind of person, not just anyone. Overall I enjoyed the book and closed it with a good feeling though still wondering about many unsolved mysteries that it contained. Great book for a weekend getaway or rainy day if there ever was one.

Libby has married a murder mystery, sex and japanese history (a smallpox epidemic). Wow! Simply not to be missed. Mr. L: where is the next one! We are waiting.

Libby is a genius at plot and tone. Really makes you feel like you are in turn of the century Japan, with all its bizarre rituals, and supersitution. One of my top 5 books ever. Cannot recommend it highly enough.
