Review from OnlineBookClub.org
One of Coles’ impeccable writing skills involves capturing the reader’s attention all through his work. Therefore, this would involve some plot deviations that ensured other characters feature in the protagonist’s story as well. As I read along, he introduced me to some people that interacted with Darwin. He also gave them room to lead their own independent lives, free from direct connection with the protagonist. This gave the book a holistic sense and introduced a sense of realism into the book.
What I liked most about this book is its steady plot development. I believe this is what actually kept me glued to the book from the first page to the last page. Coles ensured that every character had a role to play in advancing the plot and none of them appeared irrelevant. I had the most out of them and connected with them and their roles in the story. I, therefore, could get a clear picture of their relevance in the book and visualize how their absence would affect the story.
