surprisingly good, 21 Jan 2014
Just thought I’d post the most recent review for The Cross Of Santiago on Amazon. It’s always a delight to see a new reader enjoying my book 🙂
I liked the way the historical material was brought. It was also a surprise; for the first half of the book I had no idea this topic would appear; I find it very original to wait so long with introducing an important theme. I especially appreciated the difference in tone, atmosphere, etc. between the historical and the contemporary scenes, that was very skilled and made the story very credible. Naturally I loved that the story is set in Galway, where I live. I liked the contemporary parts because they gave me a glimpse into contemporary Irish lives (I am not Irish).
