The Testament of Gideon Mack - James Robertson

We had a great discussion last night at Westbourne Library about this book. The Sunday Telegraph called it "Fascinating, Extraordinary, strange and rich". We all concurred. This book is beautifully written, a pleasure to read his literary style. Book Group members were enthused into reading passages from the book that spoke to them out loud. The book is strange, it is challenging, it is dark. Do we believe that Gideon met the Devil? The jury was still out an hour later last night. Oh and apparently the Devil loves Scotland!
