Customer Review

on August 19, 2007
Like some others, I heard about this book because it was on the Madeley & Finnegan list, and I tried it because it was on display in the local library. I began at the beginning and found the style offputting and the prose flawed. I made concerted efforts to get into it by starting again at the start of other stories --- which famously are (supposedly) in other styles --- but found all of them unreadable, artificial, and lacking in anything that made me want to keep trying or read further. I abandoned it as a pretentious confection of badly told, broken narratives and I really don't understand why so many made such a fuss of it, or why it won any prizes.
