Format: Kindle Edition
Not sure how to start, but I suppose at the beginning. I chose this as it appeared to be up my street, and more importantly it caught my imagination, plus the book was quite a length.
The term book is important as I was anticipating your standard in depth novel. Well I was wrong, it is lengthy but not your standard novel by any sense of the imagination, in fact it does not follow the normal format. It's very much a collection of short stories, novellas & poetry, but all on the same subject. It took me quite a while to get into, and more than once I considered giving up, especially as the stories appear quite random, it continually jumps so that I couldn't fix on any character or storyline, but I couldn't give up as parts of it did grab me and its unfair to give up on something that is different.
I'm glad that I persevered. Yes the format is different for me, but what I did love was the poetry, the authors fantastic imagination, the writing style (not all, but overall) & the fact that the author explained her thought processes at the end of each segment. When you read these thoughts your understanding of the story segment or poetry obviously changes, so that when you read that segment again it takes on another dimension. Very clever.
The fact that the whole thing is a collection of parts allows you to read it at your leisure. I found that I was able to progress more easily if I read it over time, and not in a continuous session, and I think it is written with that in mind. In fact I'll admit that I am writing this review while still reading the last few segments, and I'm ok with that as you'll understand if you do read this.
