I really wanted this to be a good read, but I didn't enjoy it. I found the style of writing very odd, as another review mentions lines like "they ran in urine smell of shadow, they ran in clean ice smell of moon" I just couldn't get into it from the beginning. The characters are undeveloped there is almost no suspense, the father seems to be able to figure it all out very quickly from very little. It's all just a bit messy and almost nothing is really explained or feels concluded. Maybe I missed some snippets of information as I was trying to finish as quickly as possible. I know it's probably of its genre and has cult status after reading about it elsewhere but it just reads as over poetic and misses the mark for me.
