1.0 out of 5 stars The emphasis is on pace and violence., 24 Jan. 2014
This review is from: Entangled (Paperback)
I thought there would be far more spiritualism in this book. The concept is compelling, but the violence is relentless and not what I was expecting from hearing the author talk about his book on the radio.

Moreover, it feels as though the author is trying to shock me at every available level, by describing the consistency, smell & noise of someone defecating for example (he uses much ruder words.)

The nastiness is not balanced by any great attention to anything good or beautiful, and both female heroines display anger, blood-lust, and a thirst for revenge. The spiritualism of the Neanderthals is given a minor role - they are little more than shadows in the background & it was hard to remember which was which. We hardly meet the "blue woman" either, or experience her realm. All the characters are weakly drawn.

This book appears to be written for the kind of people enjoy watching very violent fast-moving films, although of course no movie would ever be permitted to show the extent of torture and execution detailed here (and there is great detail.)
