The eminently sensible book-review blog BookNAround has declared An Age of Madness to be "riveting," or more precisely, "surprisingly riveting" -- not sure where the surprising part comes from, but hey, I'll tke it. The reviewer in question, a discerning reader of impeccable taste named Kristen, said other nice things about the books, calling it "fascinating" and declares that "the reader can't help but be caught up in wanting to see past the obfuscation to the uncontestably true core, to finally know the whole story." This is of course music to my ears.
