Jellicoe Road

Jellicoe Road - This book was enjoyable all the way through. I didn't understand, at first, what was happening, but it was clear that I wasn't supposed to yet (unlike some books I've read recently), so it was easy to just enjoy the ride. And this book really is quite a ride. A multi-generational mystery with a complex plot and multifaceted characters, Jellicoe takes its time while keeping the reader well interested. I loved that, at one point in the book, I feared things might be wrapping up and I wasn't ready yet. I checked the spine, only to discover I was only half-finished. Lots of good, meaty reading left. My favorite kind of book. (Be warned: a pretty fair amount of strong language in this one.)
