New Review of an Old Story

3 out of 5 stars
An interesting and ambitious project. At times the prose does reach poigniant and emotional highs rarely found in fiction. However what this story has in grand and epic plot lines it notably lacks in character development.
In my opinion the attempt to present such an enormous encompassing sweeping view of history in and beyond its entirety at times appears to overwhelm the author (God, no previous or subsequent works by this author).
It is a brave but ultimately faulted text from a promising writer who we should expect great things from in the future, unfortunately he/she isn't at that stage quite yet.
