Stories of magic, faith and the development of humans(or lack of) from the stone age to present day. This was the second time I started to read the book, the first time I was discouraged by the first story, using first person and present tense only. But the following chapters are easier to read, even if I get a little disturbed by the shakespeary language sometimes. It's not often I find a narrative that I don't recognise from another book.

I was very excited to see what Alan Moore's writing would be like outside of his comic work. I'm pleased to say that it does not disappoint. He really has a beautiful way with words, from the Joycean (I sort of feel like a goober using that word, but it seems accurate) opening to the closing in the author's own voice. The novel seems to be an expansion of one of the most interesting themes in From Hell: an exploration of occult history. Only instead of a quick tour of magical London, we're seeing an in-depth biography of Moore's own Northhampton. It's a subject that he has a lot of passion for, and his own enjoyment makes it fun to read in return.

This book is very very good, with an intriguing framework and thematic ideas. However, the BN version of this eBook on Nook HD is a wreck, with formatting that goes off the page and cannot be changed. Read this, but get it elsewhere!
