Avid for this type of knowledge, I find Adirex to be quite informative. And he carries you thru in an action packed story.
So I forgive him for his literary weakness and thank him for what he gave me here.
Still, I'll wait a while before I go on reading another...
Reading this book was a very frustrating experience for me. I expected so much and the author certainly had the raw material to deliver. But he simply does not have the technical skills. Perhaps the book's greatest use is as a resource for creative writing classes where teachers demonstrate poor technique and use passages for students to practise improving the poor quality writing.
In places Mekong manages to walk that fine dividing line between myth and reality, such that you are not always sure which is being encountered.
