Jim Crace's novel is the brilliantly imagined story of Christ's forty days in the wilderness, a tale of three men, two women, and a curious wanderer whose peculiar fate is transformed into legend. Dazzling, gritty, and utterly compelling, Quarantine is a work at once timeless and timely - a parable for the ages.

Easy to put down, couldn't get into the story or care about the characters.

This is a wonderfully evocative and engaging book. It's an irreverent retelling of the story of Jesus spending 40 days in the desert.
