    " I heard Robertson speak in Brussels in January at the Scottish Writers Series across the street from the EU building. He is a pro both as a prolific author and speaker. Captured by his presence, I read this compelling story. It's a magical realism tale that works well in the land of glens and gorse. He blends elements that clash: Protestant faith against folklore illusion; empirical science and mystery; personal honesty and social criticism. These take us to our own precipice of perceptions. Plus the events move along swiftly and all are tightly woven together. Stones as large as Stonehenge don't just appear and disappear. "

    " This book really gave me the creeps, more so than any other book I've read. "

    " While reading this book, I really grew to enjoy Gideon Mack, an atheist minister who comes to faith after meeting the devil. Actually, meeting the devil is the hook, but the story is really about Mack's life. The book is mainly a manuscript, written by Mack (remember, this is fiction), but the postscript raises interesting questions about his reliability in narrating the account. The central question of this book is: Do you have to believe in God to be an effective minister? It's a lot more complicated an answer than it seems on the surface. "

    " A very slow first half, but when eventually it gets to when he meets the devil, it all comes together, from then on could not put the book down. A very interesting contrast between mental health and religion. I would highly recommend this book. "
