    review ¸ The Book of the Heathen A Novel of the Congo The Book of the Heathen A Novel of the CongoThis book is set in 1897 in a trading post in the Congo where the British influence is slowly declining Captain Frasier is trying to investigate whether his friend who has been accused of murdering a native child is guilty We also follow some side characters like a priest and an influential political player slave traderThe writing in this book is so very good It’s rich with atmosphere and meaning and uite cutting at times The character of the priest and how he is revealed throughout the book was a masterpiece I also appreciated all of the moral ambiguities in the novel which felt realistic for the times I hadn’t read any Edric before this novel but would certainly read The only reason I didn’t give this book 5 stars was that the big reveal felt a tad melodramatic

    review ¸ The Book of the Heathen A Novel of the Congo The Book of the Heathen A Novel of the CongoThis is the first book I have read by Robert Edric and I will definitely be reading It is set in the Congo in 1897 and concerns an Englishman who is charged with killing a native girl and his friend who tries to find out what really happened It is a very engrossing story with a fast moving plot that never gets boring

    review ¸ The Book of the Heathen A Novel of the Congo The Book of the Heathen A Novel of the CongoDark and atmospheric I enjoyed most of the book well written until about 34's throughwhen it turnedto me to be just a horror novel with scenes added for shock value alone A little over the top for me Don't let your children read it However I am sure the author wanted it this way as there is good character development and you feel like you are there in the Congo
