Act of Oblivion by Robert Harris


We are trying something new with our reviews and taking to video! Author Robert Harris has returned with the tale of the hunting of Colonels Edward Whalley and William Goffe as they flee the retribution of King Charles II. In this very first Boney Abroad Reviews video (we will fix Boney’s camera going forward!) Boney is joined by 17th Century expert Charlotte White to delve into the new novel and see if Harris’ new book stands up to the scrutiny of the hard-core Harris fan (Boney) and the hard-core Restoration writer, baker and devotee (all Charly).

Let us know if you agree with us in the comments below!
