Arrived this morning, thanks!

There is an online reading group on the book's official website, check it out at: http://www.the-gargoyle.co.uk/

The narrator is in a horrendous car accident and suffers major burns. While in hospital, he meets psychiatric patient, Marianne who claims to have known him for the last 700 years. A veritable Scheherazade, she tells him their story, as well as other love stories. Love, gothic romance, gruesome descriptions of treating a burns victim, the process of writing books in the 14th Century. Descriptive, captivating book.

I really really enjoyed this book - a great romance, without being too chick-lit and girly, excellent historical elements too. Really engaging read. had me totally gripped from the outset. Its really good to find something this easy to reaed that isnt completely intellectually devoid! I'm even going to buy a copy of this for my permenant collection once it comes out in paperback.

I really hope the next person enjoys it as much as I did, planning to post it on in the next few days

Finished this just before Christmas, and I absolutely loved it! It took me a while to get into the story, but once I did I couldn't put it down. Amazing. I'm now going to be looking out for a copy of my own :-) Thanks for sharing!

Wow, what a fantastic book. It had everything. I found the description of his burns and treatment truely horrific, I laughed out loud, and also shed a tear or two at the wonderful love story. How very apt that I found myself reading this over the Valentine's weekend!
In fact I loved this book so much, I'm off to buy another copy to give to a friend.

Tried to pm mucher28 who's next on the list, but having no joy, so this should be off to my mate molekilby in a day or two.
Thanks for sharing this book soffitta1, can't wait to see what the author Andrew Davidson comes up with next!

Just finished it and loved it! Between the moment I signed up for this ring and the moment the bok arrived, I read an awful review and almost decided not to read it. Luckily I tried, all the same, because it's a wonder of storytelling! I'll keep it some more days to pen a review and then ship it to mrbaggins.

I enjoyed this book. The descriptions of burns and burn recovery were very graphic but necessary to the story. I loved the "time travel" aspect as well.

Thanks for sharing.

I have NMReader's address and I'll mail it out on Sat.

Thanks again.
