Absolutely brilliant

I've just finished this, and as soon as the last word finished I wanted to download the next in the series. It is quite simply fantastic. Large amounts of imaginative ideas, characters that I cared about, touching relationships, dark themes. After a slowish start, turned out to be one of the best books I've heard. My wife occasionally caught me stood stock still in the Kitchen as something particularly suspenseful happened.

An original

Imagine a planet where all men could hear all other men's thoughts,the mundane the perverse and most pointedly the personal and private, except no thoughts are private on this planet. A brilliantly original piece of fiction, thought provoking and entertaining. Thsi is a trilogy that builds and builds to a very satisfying end.

The reader is excellent just the right tone.
