I picked this up while having a delicious sandwich with Vekiki and other bookcrossers during a visit to London. 2011 is going to be my year of reading books from lots of different cultures, so this fits in nicely.

Great to see you again, Vekiki. 


Journal Entry 5 by wingkiwiinenglandwing at Covent Garden, Greater London United Kingdom on Monday, January 30, 2012

9 out of 10

This book was very well written, with flashbacks to provide background information without the pace dropping. I did get a little confused when the flashbacks became real time, but I think that was because of where I stopped in the book for a rest.

The story outlines very well the ecological damage being done by drilling oil, as well as the social unrest, destruction of traditional cultures, and unhappiness involved with the industry.

I enjoyed reading this very much.
