On January 5th I posted a review of Robin Wildt Hansen’s book The World, giving it 4 stars. Since then, the author has made structural and editorial changes to the book, and on yesterday’s flight from Heathrow to Toronto, I read it again. I am pleased to say the changes have had a positive effect on the book, making it more accessible to readers and fixing issues to do with punctuation and paragraph structure. I’m upgrading my review here and on all other sites to 5 stars: Arkin’s mystical journey is now one of the best books I’ve read in the last year. It will challenge you, but it should, read with an open mind and an appreciation of language, both entertain and possibly enlighten you.
