It is clearly a very good, interesting and unique sort of book and I did enjoy it. Some of the imagery was beautiful and clear by only being indicated and it had a tension that was built on despair and frustration throughout it.
I think you could think many things about it, and I think it is good to interpret it how you feel is right. Some ideas it gave me made my head twist a little and I had to give up thinking them.
I think the main thing to know before reading this book is that the author's father really did kill himself and DON'T read the blurb on the back because it ends up complicating things unneccessarily and tells you a bit too much.
