Customer Review

on 25 April 2012
From other reviews I had expected a book with interesting philosophical development like Borges or Coelho. Perhaps it is because of my Anglo-Saxon, rather than Teutonic, background but, with the exception of the woman who went to the Swiss clinic, I found the characters dull and unsympathetic. There were some possible tentative links in the stories via mobile phones and social networks. In fact the first story seemed to open up promising possibilities. There was also the overarching question as to whether the characters were experiencing real life or artificial life as decided by the author. The 'philosophy' came in the form of self-obssession and self-analysis - not very appealing in characters you don't care about. I think this is an idea with potential in the future.
