I bought it because I accidentally found the author's blog and enjoyed reading that. I like her writing style. I found angelmakers to be really accessible too. Not quite unputdownable; it was a while ago that I read it and don't remember too much about it but I enjoyed it. I didn't find it comfortable though. It's not a book that became a friend.
I've just finnished Angel Maker and loved it. Hadn't read anything of Harkaway's before, and to be honest went on the book cover and the blurb (choose my books like I choose my wine ). I am now 72% (evidently) through The Gone Away World and also loving it although it's a bit to get my head round in parts. Very funny, just my sort of humour. Has he written anything else - I'll have withdraw symptoms when finnished.
I was talking on FB about books that 'get' you and someone I respect recommended this book. I've downloaded the sample onto the kindle app of my ipad and will tackle it tomorrow when sober. Has anyone read it? I usually go for trash, easy to read crime, e.g. Harlan coben, nicci French, richard montanari, etc. but these don't stretch me in any way.
