Awful. Just awful,
This review is from: The Facts Behind the Helsinki Roccamatios (Paperback)
I bought this book having read, and loved, The Life Of Pi. What a spectacular waste of money and time.
This 'collection' is pretentious, abstract nonsense. None of the four short 'stories' is worthy of the name story. They smack of a struggling writer, desperately scratching through a back catalogue of dreadful work, and cobbling together the best bits. All I can say is, I'd hate to have read his worst efforts.
I doubt many people will find this review helpful but I've already wasted enough time on this book, and can't bring myself to detail its shortcomings any further. If I succeed in persuading one person not to make the same mistake, I'll consider the review a success.
