Started Scrublands yesterday, read most of the afternoon and evening, far into the wee hours of the morning, up early and spent most of the day reading. Simply too good to put down. Very well written, atmospheric, good character development and one hell of a plot. Like a snowball, which you would never find in Scrublands, it kept rolling and picking up new elements and entwining them with what had gone before. And a good unwinding at the end. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
