He was so serious about this work that he actually went to live in Dublin for five years while he put in the research spadework.
He was *telling* too much in the first books, it was a bit annoying - and I couldn't get through 'Russka'. Nothng happens. Then more nothing, and after that nothing happens again
Too harsh probably, but it was boring.
'London' is the best, with 'The Forest' right after.
