I first came across Christopher Priest just recently, with his novel The Prestige. The author of The Night Circus, Erin Morgenstern, spoke about it in an online interview, as an inspiration for her work. I did enjoy The Prestige & thought I understood what was happening. However, almost all of CP's other books I have read, have left me feeling not very clever at all.
I do know what is going on for most of the book, then crash, bang, something happens & I am lost.
I normally like my world ordered & tidy, however through ill health, I have had to realise that life is not always as we would like. Therefore, I find myself more accepting of ambiguities (sometimes)& do not wear my limited stores of energy out by worrying over something I cannot solve.
This story is so good up until the last few pages. But, you may be smarter than I!
