  1. First of all it's worth saying that this is a beautiful book. Clearly, the publisher has gone to a great deal of effort, not to mention expense. The dust jacket is beautifully illustrated and underneath this the book itself is embossed, on all sides, in gold colour. The book feels very well bound and expensive. The only thing missing is a ribbon marker. The Binding is an unusual story. Binding is where a person who knows how removes someone else's memories and binds them in a book. This book is then kept secure, one assumes for all eternity. Naturally this doesn't happen so there are people who are very afraid of books and won't go near them and there are those who buy them. There are those books known as trade where people sell their memories. The central character is Emmet Farmer and it's from his viewpoint that the book is written until the last chapters where the viewpoint is from someone else. It's well written and interesting with only two question marks. One is : when people are using horses and horse drawn carriages I don't think that they would be measuring distance in metres, the other would give away the story. The author does seem to go a bit overboard with her detailed descriptions of how a character is feeling at the time and in combination with descriptions of the weather which can be a bit overwhelming to some readers. Overall though I enjoyed this book and would recommend it, with one caveat. If you are not comfortable with the thought of homosexuality this book isn't for you - these descriptions are not detailed nor torrid but it's very clear.
