Natural Flights of the Human Mind

I got this to read because I’d liked Morrall’s first book Astonishing Splashes of Colour a lot. I didn’t have a clue what it was about and didn’t read the back cover or the flyleaf or the reviews or anything like that. I just started reading and let the story slowly unfold. And it was great that way.
So I’m not going to say anything about the story, except that it’s got a lighthouse in it which you can infer from the picture on the cover, and lighthouses are always a good thing, aren’t they? The story comes together piece by piece and is fabulously told. You don’t need a synopsis, just go and start reading it.
