4 out of 5 stars
Provost has written a book for adventure lovers with the major theme of money, power and criminality. The book races along as the heroes struggle with the enemy. Provost includes the perspective of the post-colonial world, a view not often represented in U.S. literature. He also includes minorities, such as the disabled thus making his factious world more like the ‘real’ world. Despite what I have said, this is not a heavy intellectual book. It is indeed ideal for weekend reading, and will enjoyably fill your relaxation time.
