I read a lot of good reviews and I really wanted to enjoy this book. But it wasn't like I imagined. It was quite atmospheric and with a few amusing characters here and there. But just really dull! I stuck with it for 3 sessions of an hour each time and honestly, nothing happened at all to keep my attention.. I couldn't get interested. In fact, I dozed off each time and kept having to run it back. And the narrator doesn't help with his slow reading. I speeded it up to 1.25 and that improved it, but not enough. Very disappointed. I gave it up, I'm afraid.

If, like me you enjoy books where the landscape is a main character, line up for this one. The story of Ben Jones unfolds gradually, the action happening on the long desert highway stealthily takes hold and the narrator is masterful. But it's the desert that holds you in its grip from start to end. It's all about the light. Very satisfying read.

Highly recommend this story. Great characters, well developed. They haunt you well after you finish the book.
