Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Ogres are bigger than you. Ogres are stronger than you. Ogres rule the world.

It's always idyllic in the village until the landlord comes to call. Because the landlord is an Ogre. And Ogres rule the world, with their size and strength and appetites. It's always been that way. It's the natural order of the world. And they only eat people sometimes.

But when the headman's son, Torquell, dares lift his hand against the landlord's son, he sets himself on a path to learn the terrible truth about the Ogres, and about the dark sciences that ensured their rule.

Tchaikovsky does not dissapoint

The second-person narrative style is uncommon and took me a little while to get used to but it was worth it.
I'd like to see more stories set in this world.

surprisingly accurate portals of the human condit

whether the author knows it or not he's hit the nail on the head when it come to humanities inclination towards oligarchs. The author also gets right why progressives should never be trusted.

A pleasant surprise

I ignored this book for some time, due to the blurb. It just seemed like a silly thing he'd written in between projects or something.

Well, I got bored and I bought it, because he is one of my favorite authors so why not.

It was bloody brilliant. You start the book, you think you see where he's going and it's kind of obvious and is it going to be ham fisted but of course it's not, because it's Adrian and it's brilliant yet familiar because it's just so damn human.

I think Adrian's books will be considered classic literature 100-200 years from now. Well, some of them anyway.

enjoyable

very good. refreshing to read a story that is short, hat creates a rich world and manages to wrap the story up in a realistic way.

A Must!

Brilliant. Short, and to the point. A very versatile writer. I'll be listening to this story again.
