As “a shadow tongue” a version of Old English updated so as to be understandable to the modern reader The Wake renders the inner life of an Anglo Saxon man with an accuracy and immediacy rare in historical fiction To enter Buccmaster’s world is to feel powerfully the sheer strangeness of the past A tale of lost gods and haunted visions The Wake is both a sensational gripping story and a major literary achievement. I suspect if I read this again it might get an extra star I ve certainly been thinking about it enough in the three weeks since I finished it I tend The Isles extra star I ve certainly been thinking about it KING enough in the three weeks since I finished it I tend

    Well that was uite a leap Can't say I've ever gone from one star to five before But I revisited and finished this book and it turns out to be the impressive achievement that its fans claim It's a masterful stream of consciousness narrative told by a deeply unreliable narrator and one of the most compelling and chilling depictions of mental illness that I've ever read It's also a beautifully crafted example of
