2.0 out of 5 stars Review in the style of A L Kennedy!, 1 Mar 2008
This review is from: Day (Hardcover)
She has written a book, a novel of a book, a story of war and a man, a story of madness and war, of men and war, of a man and his mother and war. Some of her sentances are almost incomprehensible, too complex, as the reader reads, the reader, that person, gets to the end and thinks; 'what did I just read', did I? I did read, yes I did. They go back, read again and realise they didn't understand, it didn't work, it was just words.
The words, oh the words! They just go on and on and mean not much by the end......

Avoid.

I agree. I am in agreement, that is, you and I read the same book. Or did we? Was it a story? Was it? There was a story. Or was it an attempt to win an award? It won an award. Didn't it?

We agree. There is agreement. Agreement has been reached and on this topic, we agree.

Truly, this was an awful book that I really struggled with. It just seemed to ramble. Quite why it won a prize I can't fathom.

I've tried. He did try, honestly he tried. But the only trying thing he found was the book itself.

Only about 82 pages in and reason why I came on to the site was because I'm really struggling (like with The Gathering). Two brilliant passages but in general the rambling nature of the narrative is confusing and frankly I'm thinking 'can I be bothered'? I agree 'why did it win anything?
