Writing Bar Review

Andrea Baldwin's review of The Promise of Iceland has appeared in Writing Bar, the blog of the Sydney Writers' Centre. Andrea writes:

What stands out for me about this book is the narrative voice. It’s honest, conscientious and, almost to the end, somewhat bewildered. It creates a saga-like feel: the hero is on a difficult quest with which onlookers, however sympathetic, cannot help because he has to do it himself. You feel like cheering when he succeeds.

The review is available in full here.
