The Pursuit of William AbbeyThe Pursuit of William Abbey by Claire North

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Enjoyed this book. Similar device to the one the author uses in 'Sudden Appearance of Hope' but I felt better carried out in this one. The climax and resolution felt rather contrived -but of course the initial premise of the book is also quite contrived. Some of the characters felt a bit unreal (not talking about Langa here!) but the main characters felt 'real' enough to carry the plot forward. A good read, overall.
