I may well have enjoyed this book had I realised it was book two of a series with the Novel The Dust That Falls from Dreams being the first in the Series by Louis de Bernieres I picked this one up in hard copy and it didn t state that it was part of a series on the jacket or in the premise which seemed a shame I found the book very difficult to get into and could not keep track of the characters until half ways through the novel I was confused by who was who and I didn t find the characters vivid or realistic but this may be down to the fact that I hadn t read the first book in the series and therefore missed crucial insights in to the characters personalities It was only on completion of the novel that I realised it was part of a series and therefore may be the reason I had difficulty connecting with this story The book did slightly redeem itself in the second half although the plot remained uite far fetched and improbable I had a sense of relief on completing the novel and don t think I will miss the characters very much
