by Tom Rachman

Doubleday Canada | June 10, 2014 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

The Rise & Fall of Great Powers is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.
The New York Times and Globe & Mail-bestselling author of The Imperfectionists returns with an intricately woven novel about a bookseller who travels the world to make sense of her puzzling past.
     Tooly Zylberberg tells a story: as a child, she was stolen from home, stashed at a den of thieves, then adopted by crooks there, who ended up raising her and even using the little girl in capers around the globe. But Tooly understands only fragments of what happened in Thailand, Italy, New York and beyond. Then, a desperate message reaches her musty bookshop in Wales, and she is lured into a journey that will reveal the secret of her childhood. Celebrated for his ingenious plotting, humanity and humor, Tom Rachman has written a novel that will amplify his reputation as one of the most exciting young writers today.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding For once, the reviews were not overly effusive. This book is wonderful. The writing is elegant, powerful, full of humour and completely original. The story is original, intriguing, and thoughtfully told. The characters are fully drawn, flawed yet totally enchanting. I loved every page and can't stop thinking about it now that I'm done - the true sign of a successful work of art. My best read in a long time!
