Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Yellow Blue Tibia: A Novel (Paperback)
I bought this book under the influence of the recommendations from Amazon and the positive reviews posted about it. What a disappointing read. I should have put it to one side as soon as it failed to capture my imagination within the first fifty pages. The prose is turgid, making it a difficult read. The story is hardly compelling and presents as many unique writing occasions that were never intended to be linked together in a single novel. In other words, the complete novel presents as an artificial construct. The explanation in the final chapter of the book's logic and "science" is ample evidence that the previous 300 pages had been disjointed. As for the novel's "humour", don't get me started on that...
