This is a truly phenomenal book. It has no definition, no genre: it cannot be put into a group with different books. It is unique. Travelling through time, the four quarters of this novel fit eerily together.
It takes you to the first people to roam Earth, and a girl who unknowingly kills her people, and far into the future as Keir Bowman travels through a high-tech spaceship
I have never read anything of the kind and you won’t have either. It is truly remarkable. I am mightily impressed by Marcus Sedgwick and his beautiful style and use of language.
I am looking forward to reading another of his book, The Foreshadowing. I can’t wait to blog about it.
