    Iain Pears

    I read his Instance of the Fingerpost because one of his reviewers said it might be the greatest mystery novel ever written, and 735 pages later, I thought that might be right. It is set in Oxford in the 1660s, and it helps to be really interested in that period -- as far as I can tell everything he says about actual people of that period is right on target.
    Then I started reading his other novels, and I think they are dreadful.

    I read Dream of Scipio. Very strange book indeed.
