  • Beautiful prose

    This is the first book I have read by Andrew Miller and I would love to read more of his eloquent prose. The setting in the Hebrides is breathtaking. And, besides the islands and the moors, there's the choppy sea. What poetry !! I think of Shakespeare and also of the romantic poets and if you like French poetry -- Paul Verlaine and an image straight out of Arthur Rimbaud. The story has been told before -- a soldier and/or deserter on the run from himself and from the atrocities of the Napoleonic Wars. The author has used elements from the My Lai Massacre in 1968 in VietNam, borrowing the names of some of the protoganists to bring his point across. "There but for the grace of God go I". I highly recommend this novel for the universality of its themes and for the beauty of its text.
