The Word From Poland

I've not actually got my hands on the book yet, but I'm thrilled to hear the someone is reading Akacja, the Polish version of Acacia: The War With The Mein. A very kind Olga Michalik said lots of lovely things about the book: HERE. (I think.)

Take this, for example:

"W dobie wszechobecnej marnej, często nawet prymitywnej fantasy "Akacja" Davida Durhama stanowi prawdziwą perełkę. Z zalewającej nasz rynek powodzi nędznych podróbek Tolkiena "Akację" wyróżnia przede wszystkim bardzo oryginalna i dobrze dopracowana koncepcja świata."

Oh... Thank you Olga.

Apparently, it is said here that "Acacia" is really original in the fantasy litterature (Tolkienish...), with a very actual view mixed with the plot...", or something not too far. Shortly said, the Polish critic liked it.

By the way, a very goud New Year Eve for everydobly around here !

Best

(-- Big silence all around... "Is there anybody out there ?" offered a tiny and quite - not so - angry voice in the Void... --)

And then... (?)

Actually, it says: „In times of overwhelmingly poor, even primitive fantasy David Durham’s “Acacia” is a real gem. In the mass of pale Tolkien imitations flooding our market “Acacia” distinguishes itself with a very original and well thought out concept of the world” (sorry for my English). By the way, I am from Poland, I love your books and I can’t wait for the final instalment!
