A great wee book, I got drawn into the story quickly and never looked back.
The style changes as it moves between the stories in the stories, which not only makes it more intriguing, as you try to work out just what is real in all this, but a great read too.
I felt like my mind was being turned inside out at the end. Not as unpleasant an experience as it might sound.
If it sounds a bit dry, it's not. It's nominally set in some bit of middle europe a few hundred years ago, but it feels like it's another world altogether.
