it was amazing
Read in December, 2011

i read this in dec 2011 but forgot to say it is a fantastic multimedia story of phtographas and interconnected thoughts on ancient indian celestial observatories, mysterious lifeways of eels and oceans, and love. i can just imagine a young cortazar visiting the observatory and his mind exploding with the thoughts and connections in this book.

message 1: by knig (new) - added it

knig Can I admit it was the thought os lots of pictures which inspired me to just order this? (I just finished Kierkegaard. I am SICK of words. I need pictures)

Tuck there are some really great pictures in this, but also very abstract in their isolation, so be sure and read the words too
