Customer Review

on 1 February 2012
First, I like the style, straightforward first-person narration, sometimes in the present tense, sometimes contemplative and poetic. Simple, but effective, a bit like Hermann Hesse, and definitely ahead of its time.
And the simple story is strangely compelling. Strange - yes it is that. Mysterious. The protagonists actions are sometimes hard to fathom and his relations with women are frustrating to me as reader. The poetic descriptions of Nature are good, and I would have liked a bit more of that.
The appendix section, 'Glahn's Death' seemed superfluous to me, and I think the book would have ended better without that. All in all though a haunting book that kept me turning the pages, and which now makes me want to explore some more of this writer's work.
