    Enthralling

    This is a masterpiece of storytelling about the election of a new Pope about which we think that we know a great deal but in reality know next to nothing. The characters are well drawn and the procedure itself enthralling. This is a book which is so much of its day.

    Neatly done

    Astonishing twist at the end almost an anticlimax after the engrossing exploration of the context of the next conclave.

    Exciting and Informative

    The pope has died and the cardinals are gathered to choose the next one. In the 15 minutes before the door shuts them away from the outside world 2 dramatic events take place. A fascinating thriller incorporating what happens during the voting system for a new pope, with some dramatic action, twists and difficult decisions to be made by Cardinal Lomeli who must run the voting process. The voting process itself was fascinating reading (I knew nothing about it before), including the politicking of the likely candidates. Set in the current time, in Rome, the book starts quite slowly, though interestingly, with the gathering of the cardinals and the commencement of the voting process. After quite a large section of the book has passed, suddenly shocks and twists start occurring, and then I was glued to the book until the end. Half way through this book I was rating it a 3 or 4 (I found it a bit slow, but very interesting), however by the end my view is that it definitely merits a 5* rating. Overall It was exciting, informative and has given me lots to think and talk about.

    Spannende page turner

    Spannend tot de laatste zin. Geweldige realistische roman die lichtelijk in de toekomst speelt. Het zou zomaar zo kunnen gebeuren...

    The conclave

    A real page turner, with so many twists and turns I couldn't put it down. All the household chores and gardening were neglected till I'd finished it......first class!
