Installments the redeeming feature,
This review is from: The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters (Hardcover)
I got this in ten installments before Christmas - it's a great marketing ploy and I loved getting each edition. Sadly, that was the only good and memorable aspect of this clumsily written, limp and dull novel. If I'd been faced with a further 700 pages having struggled through the first 50 or so, I'd have abandoned it and demanded my money back. It fails so utterly to conjure up an alternative world and the ideas are so poorly delineated that it seems hardly credible that Viking should be publishing it. For once, and this is perhaps a first, the marketing department should be congratulated.
