Novel Tease

Random meanderings about the books I love—or don't. 

Interspersed with observations about my hobbies: Beer & Wine, Bridge, Bikes and Bow-wows.

Genesis - Bernard Beckett This is a book that you're likely to form an opinion of in the first few pages. It's a good story, but the style may well put you off. The entire tale is told in the form of an oral examination for entrance to "The Academy". Frankly, I hate the style, but I'm sure it was pretty well done.

The story itself is interesting, with a twist that I anticipated, but not so soon as to ruin the ending. The editing is pretty good - my one quibble is that multiple voices are not supposed to speak in a single paragraph.
