A big powerful, emotional novel, both love story and war story, that will stay with me for a very long time. Stunning. My congratulations to the author on his very fine achievement.
#NZBooks Perplexed by MeGee's *The Antipodeans'. Good story-telling, but loose prose & emotionally too stock. Needs tighter edit (I reckon).— Mark Hubbard (@MarkHubbard33) August 8, 2015
25% into The Pale North, I retract the above. I'm getting it now, the words occupying my mind have changed to 'aberrant; beguiling; singular talent, and treat'. Also, sentimentality is the point; Mr Clayton has cracked through the crust. Indeed, beginning to view this novel as a stunner. Looks like Wulf remains on the reading list.
Full retraction and review of The Pale North.
