In the end I hate it that there is no sequel...

A highly readable adventure story set in Viking times. As in Thomas Holt's 'Meadowland' (which is not as good as this one), we have an accidental journey to the New World, though this only occurs late in the book.

Watkins can certainly write and it's a good story, but it wanders around a bit. At one point, it seemed as if it was going to be more about religion and faith (specifically the clash between the old religion and Christianity) but that element doesn't quite take off.

Highly readable and some gripping scenes. But not essential reading. It's not particularly moving or thought-provoking. Plus, given that it's a first-person narration, the reader is never exactly worried that the narrator will not escape his many predicaments. As he's telling us the story, we know it will end happily so the suspense is never too strong.... ( )
