Mount the mind! I don't have the mental resiliance and general writerly wherewithal to work through my Goodreads reviews (I have a similar egofragile aversion to my Amazon reviews, Waterstones reviews etc) but 4/5 and 3.8/5 is what the summary above suggests. Are those numbers right? Too high? Perhaps too low? There's only one way for you to know: get hold of a copy of my latest novel and have a read.
