My favourite book of the year so far and one that is going to take some beating. I thought it all but impossible for Simmons to top what he achieved in The Terror, which remains one of the best books I have ever read, but Drood is equally remarkable and the author a singular talent that leaves the rest of the field flailing in his wake. An extraordinary novel - very, very, VERY highly recommended!
The UK edition of Drood is a huge and hefty trade paperback published by Quercus and one can only hope's its deserved success is not hampered by the absolutely awful cover they've put on it!
