Book: Sinai Tapestry

Author: Edward Whittemore

Details: (c) 1977 Edward Whittemore; Pub Magnum 1979; ISBN 0-417-03400-8

Verdict: Sinai Tapestry is strangely compelling despite being weird.

Reasons for reading it: rysmiel read Chaim Potok's The book of lights at my recommendation, and suggested that if I enjoyed that I might get on with Whittemore.

How it came into my hands: lethargic_man brought it with him to lend to me when he came to visit last week, which was much appreciated.

Note to blurb writers: nothing ever benefits from being compared to LotR. I guess one day it will happen that someone will write something as good, but I really hope that when that does occur, the marketing people will have enough sense not to put that stupid comparison on the cover.
