Very happy to report that the 40th Amazon UK review of The Survival of Thomas Ford is now in (which is also the book's 33rd five-star review)
I remember when I started back in January (having published on December 25 while everyone else ate turkey) I thought that it would be IMPOSSIBLE to ever get 40 reviews.
Thank-you very much, Kindledays!
"Outstanding. I lost two days of my holiday to this extraordinary book.
I bought it on the recommendation of someone who seems to have had an instinctive understanding of the sort of book I would enjoy. I'm so glad I listened because once I started reading The Survival of Thomas Ford I was drawn into something really quite extraordinary.
From the first paragraph I was mesmerised. Yet the clear bare prose of the opening pages had a haunting quality that lulled me into a world I had not - could not have from the gentle opening - anticipated. A compulsive read, a story that gripped and shocked with its unsparing clarity."
