This review is from: Indigo Or Mapping The Waters (Paperback)
I wanted to like this book because, really, I want to applaud anyone with the ambition to use a Shakespeare play as the starting point for a novel. And this novel starts off well. I found the first half of it to be interesting and engaging, but unfortunately it seemed to lose its way somewhere and I ended up thinking that this is really a 250-page book that's been stretched to nearly 400. The other thing that began to bug me was that it does not really have anything very original to say. If you are familiar with books by Jean Rhys, VS Naipaul and other Caribbean writers, then you won't find anything new here.
