It appears this book is not released in the UK in paperback till October and is not available on Kindle, so if I do read it, it will be a few months from now, but it does look interesting.

Good grief - I think I actually proposed that we go for this book and I hadn't even noticed that it was chosen! And in the meantime I've gone and lent my copy to someone else...

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

I was pretty underwhelmed but willing to come back and discuss when others are finished.

I'm enjoying it - interesting concept and voice. Will probably finish it next week.

Ah, well not in the UK and you can't buy a Kindle book from another country's store. Shame. Well, I'm glad it's good and I hope to read it in due course!
