Journal Entry 1 by smallbluepebble from Ilford, Greater London United Kingdom on Tuesday, September 13, 2016
From the cover... "Equal parts raucous adventure, comic odyssey and romantic epic, The Gone-Away World is a story of- among other things- love and loss; of ninjas, pirates, politics; of curious heroism in strange and dangerous places; and of a friendship stretched beyond its limits. But it is also the story of a world, not unlike our own, in desperate need of heroes- however unlikely they may seem."

Sounds good, doesn't it? At 584 pages, it's not a quick read... but it really is as good as its own publicity!

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

I'll be taking this book along to a Bookcrossing meet-up in the Knights Templar. If nobody fancies taking it home, it will be left somewhere in the city for a stranger to find and enjoy.

Since three people recommended the book, how could I not take it? Since the blurb is somewhat intriguing, I'll probably start reading it on the plane on way home...
Thank you for bringing the book to the meet-up, smallbluepebble! It was great meeting you!

Have to admit I just couldn't find the flow and ride it. After reading other journals I was really looking forward to liking the book, but at least in current state of mind, we weren't a match made in heaven. But, I already know a keen reader for the book, so it'll continue its journey in Finland!

Pippis kindly offered this intriguing book which caught my eye. It's bigger than I realised, so let's see when I'll get to it. Thanks for the book!
