This review is from: Evil Guest, An (Hardcover)
Having read the synopsis, I was hoping for another "Gene Wolfe classic", however the book so far has been a disappointment to me. Apart from a few flashes of brilliant writing (hence the two star rating), the characters are two-dimensional, the plot is ponderous and there are pages and pages of simply boring dialogue - I've looked for the usual hidden clues and alternative meanings, but even these seem to be scarce. I must admit that I am only half-way through the book, however, unless someone can persuade me that it's worth persevering, I am going to put it aside. When comparing "An Evil Guest" with a similar type of story, such as "There are Doors", this is not in the same league.
