His finest self-contained work,
This review is from: Peace (FANTASY MASTERWORKS) (Paperback)
In his usual style, Gene Wolfe doesn't make anything very explicit, but gradually builds a progressive sense of wrongness until you must start reading again and re-examine everything that has gone before. This is a very intimate novel, with very few characters, and a very small range of locations (or apparent locations), all of them convincingly evoked as partially remembered by a dying man.

I've just started this and find it incomprehensible. My sense of 'wrongness' is that it is simply very badly written. That's why you have to start reading again - the writer simply cannot write clear prose!
