It's a frightening book in places. Nasty things happen, but only in dreams. But then you start to understand that the dreams are more real than the waking. Lines are blurred and the narrator is extremely and rather deliciously unreliable.
It took me two reads to understand the ending. I'll re-phrase that and say it took me two reads to INTERPRET the ending. (Some may interpret it differently from me.) Like a sad ending on the surface but happy when you dig deeper and think about it. Sad? Happy? Whatever. The ending is perfect.
This book describes a version of immortality and made me believe in it. Yet really is only showing a fractured personality disorder, or is it? Not to me. It was more. But I'm a dreamer.
The language is as good as it gets. Many rules are broken. You have to know what you're doing to get away with that and he does. My top book of the decade so far.
It has to be said that this probably is not a book for all readers - but those who like it will like it a lot! Give it a go, it is something special!
This a new and different novel.
Did I empathise with the protagonist?
I enjoyed getting into her mind.
It's got quite a few aha moments..if only I'ld twigged earlier.
Well structured and richly crafted...too rich at times.
The emotional calculus is intriguing.
It's worth a second read.
This is the most remarkable, delicious book I've ever read and there's at least a third reading in it for me this year.
