The Deckled Edge

I was put on this earth to read a certain number of books. I am now so far behind I will never die.

The Dervish House - Ian McDonald Dervish House is written in the same vein as River of Gods and Brasyl, but is a bit smaller in scope. That might be considered a drawback, however the tighter focus and greater characterization, in combination with a city that practical leaps off the pages, makes for a very strong work. McDonald's latest book might be his best novel to date. 9 out of 10.
