I had such high hopes for this book. It reminds me of Isak Dinesen’s writing. Like her, Krudy has the power to enthral with lyrical vocabulary and imaginary. But he did not develop a plot or characters enough to hold me there. Maybe, like Dinesen, he should had written short stories, as even as a novella it felt too long and repetitive.
The three stars are there because I am a sucker for poetic prose and rich vocabulary.
