    1. Novel set in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil feel the beat of the country Joel is a young dentist, now living in Brighton He lost his father in traumatic circumstances in his younger years, when the family lived in Rio And this is the story of his personal quest to discover whether his father is actually still alive or not It is a poignant account of longing, loss and hope It forms a strong central narrative, as Joel abandons his life in England after he believes he sees his Father as a bystander on a TV [...]

    2. It was with a heavy heart that I finally gave up on this book last night I m a huge fan of Myriad Editions, and I was looking forward to reading this book, and I really wanted to like it But I just couldn t get into it I liked the early descriptions of Brighton, because I could picture them having lived there for a while But I just found the writing a little stilted perhaps, and I didn t really like the characters I ve given it 2 stars because it s not terrible, but it just wasn t for me At leas [...]

    3. December book for the Broadway Book Club.Book choices for this Book Club haven t always been ones I ve liked but I loved this book Some of the group wanted to go to Brighton after reading it.It s well written, good characters, my favourite being Nelson.Published by a small publisher called Myriad, they advertised some of their other books at the back and they looked interesting so we may read some of them.

    4. Parts of this book are beautifully written, many of the characters feel alive and complex, and the dialogue throughout is funny and vivid The story moves smoothly, if not always convincingly, and I found the book engaging and readable without sacrificing subtlety However, some of the scenes set in Brazil seem to rely for atmosphere on italicized Portuguese words and neighborhood names tokens of exoticism that don t always convey real insight into the place.

    5. Full of suspense, funny, serious, tragic Aptly depicts Joel s frantic search for his father and cultural differences between England and Brazil Could hardly put the book down.
