    “Napoleon's Last Island, the latest book from Thomas Keneally, and the fact that the book is unfailingly great reading is testimony to the fact that Keneally is our greatest living practitioner of historical fiction. The book is a complex and mesmerizing success.” Steve Donoghue, Christian Science Monitor.
