With unexpected turns in the story, and plenty of odd characters (some who perhaps were trying a little too hard to be the quirky sidekick of any quest tale), Emberton was an unusual, darker 'bookish book' than many I've read.

No twee charms here; it's all daily tedium until Lance's curiosity gets him into the deep centre of the whole mess. Funny, cringe-inducing, a wee bit ponderous at times, this is still an original tale.
