5 star review for The Zarathustra Principle!

I almost forgot to mention that I got a great review for The Zarathustra Principle (http://getBook.at/Zarathustra) on Amazon.com (US, I assume).  Because it’s Amazon.com, the review doesn’t show up on Amazon.co.uk which is a shame.  The interesting thing is that the reviewer was a Mr Seth Melamed who I don’t know and have never met.   Because I haven’t been seriously pushing the book until now, he must have touched upon it by chance.  Anyway, the link is at: http://www.amazon.com/The-Zarathustra-Principle-ebook/dp/B00BZSM964/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1364120978&sr=1-1&keywords=roger+hardy

…and here is the review:
This was a wonderful book that I absolutely could not put down. The story is set in Cologne Germany in 1926 told from the standpoint of a murder mystery. The author truly puts the reader into Cologne artfully depicting the city and the cast of characters that inhabit it with vivid and lush details. The story hurtles forward weaving together elements of a murder mystery, romance, coming of age story, with a background of the ominous rise rise of Nazism in a 1926 Germany struggling to recover from WWI
Hardy triumphs in depicting the conflicts with in a Jewish family with a son who is devoted to science and modernism vs. his family who stress and belief in faith. He handles the conflict with realism and grace.
The story is griping in the way we see the characters evolve in ways unexpected – both dreadful and beautiful. Up to the very end my heart was pounding thanks to the fast pace and soaring story arc. A wonderful read, do not miss it!
I’m really chuffed!
