Although neither is really easy to follow, the first, Skinner Boxed, went more smoothly for me. It's the story of a man, a psychiatrist, who has his life perfectly in order, he thinks, until suddenly it isn't. The revelations are both fascinating and funny, especially, I think, for those who have an interest in psychology and its ups and downs. The main character is developed very well, and is quite clever, even when just talking to himself and his dog.
The second, was more confusing to me. It's about a young woman in Japan, who I believe is native to another, English speaking country, though she is half Japanese. It concerns her love life, and relationships with very widely differing men. She seems to enjoy pitting them against each other, even if only in her own mind. Much of the dialogue is witty and sharp, which is enough to have kept me interested, even though I had trouble empathizing with the main character.
I'd recommend the book for those who love reading for the writing itself, rather than the characters or the plots, which are a little murky.
The style of writing in White Mythology was unexpected and a little bit difficult at first but it's so intriguing and different from anything I've read that it really didn't put me off and made me feel rather accomplished by the end after piecing everything together. I found the novellas to be very clever and stimulating until the very end and would love to read more from WD Clarke. Something new and challenging was just what I needed and is what I felt I received in White Mythology.
