Journal Entry 1 by wingBoekentrolwing from Leeuwarden, Fryslân (Friesland) Netherlands on Sunday, March 20, 2011
"'Be warned. This book has no literary merit whatsoever. It is a lurid piece of nonsense, convoluted, implausible, peopled by unconvincing characters, written in drearily pedestrian prose, frequently ridiculous and wilfully bizarre. Needless to say, I doubt you'll believe a word of it.' So starts the extraordinary tale of Edward Moon, detective, his silent sidekick the Sonambulist and devilish plot to recreate the apocalyptic prophecies of William Blake and bring the British Empire crashing down. "

Before sending it out, I really intended to read it.
It has ben on my shelf so long, that it's almost shameful to admit I did not get to it till now.

And now that I did, I am in the middle of a serious reading dip. I can't get any substantial reading done. It's not more than a few pages at the time, when the book interests me.
And that's not the case with this book. I didn't get into it, and I gave up around page 50.
Don't want to keep the person who chose this book's first sentence waiting any longer...

Thank you for sharing this book with me, I really enjoyed it. It was a rip roaring tale, with a slightly bizarre storyline and odd theme - exactly the sort of thing that I love! A thriller come crime story with an unusual plotline and setting it was great.
