Maybe I just don't get it...,
This review is from: Palimpsest (Paperback)
Yes, the language is exquisite, but i must confess after In the Night Garden books this left me cold. I was intrigued but soon everything settled into a kind of predictability. My fault perhaps, but i just couldn't care about the characters and whether they actually got what they wanted. From one perspective, the book is very "now" in the themes it explores, the desire for gratification, the desire for escape, etc. but because i just couldn't empathise it left me sadly cold. Oh well... maybe i just don't dream this way.
