    This novel sparked and renewed my interest in Caribbean history once again! Puddicombe's clever blend of fact with fiction in the context of colonial/pre-independent Guyana was most fascinating. The inclusion of factual content (CIA documents) with real lived experiences and a thought provoking analysis makes this novel a joyous read!

    I recieved this book through Good reads first reads.While not the most drawing in or appealing book to me personally I do think it is very well written. The author is quite talented in his writing and it is an enjoyable book regardless of it not being one that drew me in and and kept me reading without stoppping like some other books I have encountered. I am thankful for the experience to have recieved a copy and been able to read it.

    I found this book most inspiring especially being from a place where I could relate to the events which impacted on my own personal life. The author has an amazing skill not only to narrate the tale in a 'live' manner, but often left me overwhelmed at times. His style of varying back and forth within different events was smooth and kept me spellbound throughout from chapter to chapter!

    This book wasn't for me. From the little i read, the writing was good, but the content wasn't what i was looking for. Did not complete.
