Third book in the trilogy, but the first that I read. Love the magic realism, the characters, the plot, the insight, the satire (which, as I believe good satire should, takes a back seat to the compelling story). Beautiful.

So much better than Captain Correlli. Forget that book and read this series. Quirky, intelligent, mysterious; well rewritten. Nearest series I can think of is Dr Siri by Colin Cotterill.
