This review is from: Among Others (Kindle Edition)
So this is a book where something has happened which has turned someones world upside down. It harps on about this after setting the scene well in the first chapter and then .... Stops. We then wait and wait as the author tries to keep the massive change a mystery. If I am honest it is a nasty plot device and such an obvious trick to keep you interested I gave up. Perhaps I will comeback to it. Probably not.
The best bit about the book is the referencing of other great works of sci-fi and fantasy. It is like a little book of worship to the genre. There is probably a plot that will develop but I cannot wade through the endless hanging pieces of narrative which are left to reveal later. What was the accident, why is the mother dangerous... You know what you left it too long so I no longer care. This is lazy book writing. It is not suspense.
