    Writer Mark Helprin is on a level with master writer John Irving. Helprins characters are well developed and the storyline is complex without being cumbersome. Reads beautifully.

  • A really fabulous and unusual novel May 10, 2007
    by JacobSchraeter

    This is the kind of book you want to to hand down to your children and grandchildren. It is part historical novel, part mystical fantasy and part allegory starting at the end of the ninteenth century and ending in the new millenium with many of the ninteenth century characters still in t he plot. The plot is a wonderful adventure story about writers, criminals, the rich, the poor and a fabulous white horse who flies through space and time. I have rarely read an author who is capable of such leaps of imagination as this one or whose imagery and widely ranged vocabulary is put to such fine effect as this one. It is a truly riveting book.
