Reviewed in the United States on October 5, 2015
I recently read Jans's other book, A Wolf Called Romeo, and loved it so much I thought I'd try this one. This book is a very evenhanded treatment of what is a controversial topic. That said, the last 50+ pages of the book seemed to go on too long. Perhaps Jans is so close to the story that he's more intrigued by some of the other personalities than a stranger might be. Overall, I highly recommend this book. The writing is beautiful and the story is pretty fascinating. I just think a good editor should have trimmed out bits and parts to make it a good read for a wider audience. As it stands now, certain sections feel like they are interesting for insiders only. If that makes sense.
