    This is going to have to be another one of those reviews that comes with a disclaimer I love Adrian McKinty s books Although I will admit that it s always been the dark side, his flawed and controversial characters, and his noir stylings that I d thought appealed particularly.THE SUN IS GOD is none of that and yet there are glimpses Based on elements of a true story, set in 1906 New Guinea, this is the tale of the investigation into the death of a man on a remote island in the midst of a comm This is going to have to be another one of those reviews that comes with a disclaimer I love Adrian M...

    An odd one this I bought it because Adrian McKinty wrote it Having been out of touch for a few months, it snuck up on me, I didn t know McKinty had another novel on the way Miles away, both thematically and geographically, from what I expected for a McKinty book this story of a little known unknown to me colony of sun worshipping German immortality seekers at the start of the 20th Century probably would not have attracted my attention was McKinty not one of my favourite writers But it is a An odd one this I bought it because Adrian McKinty wrote it Having been out of touch for a few months, it snuck up on me, I didn t know McKinty had another novel on the way Miles away, both thematically and geographically, from what I expected for a McKinty book this story of a little known unknown to me colony of sun worshipping German immortality seekers at the start of the 20th Century probably would not have attracted my attention was McKinty not one of my favourite writers But it is a fascinating tale of colonialism, cults and murder which McKinty, with few stumbles a reference to Sherlock Holmes seems a little forced handles incredibly well Through the eyes of his fairly ineffectual hero, an ex British soldier recovering from the horrors of the Boer war, Adrian explores the mystery of the cocovores on a South Pacific island whose belief that the secret of eternal life is in coconuts...

    This McKinty book is a bit of departure from his usual fayre, in both its setting and era The narrative takes place in 1906 on the German colonial island of Kabakon, part of German New Guinea, and features former British military policeman Will Prior, now a rubber plantation manager, who thanks to his past experience is asked to investigate the death of a member of a group called the Cocovores, a group of nudists who live on the island, worship the sun, and eat nothing but coconut Bizarre The This McKinty book is a bit of departure from his usual fayre, in both its setting and era The narrative takes place in 1906 on the German colonial island of Kabakon, part of German New Guinea, and features former British military policeman Will Prior, now a rubber plantation manager, who thanks to his past experience is asked to investigate the death of a member of a group called the Cocovores, a group of nudists who live on the island, worship the sun, and eat nothing but coconut Bizarre The fact that the case actually did exist makes it all theintriguing.I have issues with many of McKinty s NI based novels, thanks to their far fetched storylines, but I was freed from that this time, and enjoyed what was a pretty short book McKinty did a pretty good job in bringing the colony, with all its strange ideas and customs to life, as well as portraying the early 20th century hangups and beliefs of Prior and his civilised compatriots, th...

    The pace was way too slow to be satisfying and the ending felt inconclusive Interesting setting, place, and time disappointing characters.

    Great prose, but not a great story.This is a work of historical fiction about a relatively minor episode in the history of New Guinea, although it does provide a glimpse of what German colonialism was like in 1906 I ve read all McKinty s mysteries, and this novel is quite different Although I thought his prose was often as fine as usual, the story itself isn t all that exciting Some of the characters were interesting, although I couldn t tell how much of their personalities were figments of M Great pr...
