Categorization is odious. There is tremendous overlap among genres. These pigeonholes are offered only as a convenience.

An Instance of the Fingerpost is a book that has been a hit with every person that I've recommended it to. It combines a great story with a unique writing style. It's hard to pin down, as each part of the book is very different in tone. It's a murder mystery, a love story, medical history, and ten other things all rolled into one.
