The Islanders Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
The Dream Archipelago is a vast network of islands. The names of the islands are different depending on who you talk to, their very locations seem to twist and shift. Some islands have been sculpted into vast musical instruments, others are home to lethal creatures, others the playground for high society. Hot winds blow across the archipelago and a war fought between two distant continents is played out across its waters. THE ISLANDERS serves both as an untrustworthy but enticing guide to the islands, an intriguing, multi-layered tale of a murder and the suspect legacy of its appealing but definitely untrustworthy narrator.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
It's short vignettes that I can only assume must eventually resolve into a story. (I couldn't finish it)

It almost answers questions asked in the original collection of stories , and that really should be read first , to get the most out of this book.
Even on its own though , this is a complex and rewarding book that is best read over several days rather than in one sitting , as its episodic structure lends itself best to that and the vagueness of memory.
I read hundreds of books in a year and few stand out - this one did and still does ; it is a genuine masterwork.
I was unsure whether his work could still touch me, as it used to.
It does. This was an immensely satisfying read.
Dazzling, shocking, sweet and overwhelming.
