“…Her hallmarks include laugh-aloud humour, plenty of magic and imaginative array of alternate worlds. Yet, at the same time, a great seriousness is present in all of her novels, a sense of urgency that links Jones’s most outrageous plots to her readers’ hopes and fears…”

But I powered through. It turned out to be an interesting read, but it took me over a week to read it, when it should have taken less than a day. The out-of-sync nature didn't feel necessary. It helped to hide some of the characters' identities, but for some of them, who would have guessed anyway?
I am naturally a tad negative, so if this reads as though I hated it, allow me to clarify: it was actually pretty good. Once I got over the timing issues, the story flowed quite nicely. As I learnt about some of the characters, they became a lot easier to accept, and I really started to root for them, particularly Hume.
The story is quite dated, and you can tell, but don't let that put you off. This one will make the shelf, once I've made room. In fact, I may have to buy another bookcase.
