First read the book a couple of decades ago. Loved it then, and still do after a re-read. Especially since much has come to light to give credence to the main plot. From page to page I never knew what was going to happen next and some scenes were truly chilling. A great read!

Although Findley chose an interesting twist of seeing the major events of World War 2 through the eyes of poet Ezra Pound's fictional character, Hugh Selwyn Mauberley, I quickly lost interest in this book. It started off wonderfully with the main character escaping from a train, but then led into nothing but name-dropping and nothing of particular interest. I read the first half of the book (200 pages), and left it at that. (Nov 2002)
