This review is from: The Bunting Quest (Kindle Edition)
Not only does the book have an amazing story line, it is beautifully written, thoroughly researched, and incredibly interesting.
The Bunting Quest alternates between Europe (Modern and 16th Century) and Western Australia, as its array of multi-ethnic characters interact on the canvas of Marcusson’s highly-original plot. The Bunting Map referred to in the title - a genuine article that the author once possessed - appears to bear a crude outline of Western Australia - an impossibility by conventional understanding, as Europeans had not yet discovered the continent when the map was drawn.
Having decided to write a book to explain this unusual artifact, Marcusson needed a plot to bring it all together. And what a plot he dreams up; if the secret of the Bunting Map is ever revealed, it would bring catastrophe upon the whole of Christendom!
Marcusson’s descriptions are detailed, his language rich, and his historical knowledge impressive.
This is a great book, well worth the read, and it wouldn’t surprise me in the least to see it eventually projected on a cinema screen.
