Captivating - but something missing?,
This review is from: The Wolf (Hardcover)
I came to this book thinking it was an author's depiction of what life might realistically be like from a wolf's perspective - and really intrigued because of that. What the novel is, however, is a dreamlike fable with a wolf at its centre, moving from that sort of realism to something with a more human type of intelligence.
It's vivid and captivating, but I did end it feeling a little disappointed - the story centres around a moment of deep understanding and compassion which felt, to me, to distract from what could have been a great authorial trick. That said, I would still recommend people to take a look at the book - it's intriguing, I'm just not certain what the point is.
