really liked it
bookshelves: weird-oriented
Read in June, 2009

And so I’m done with The Etched City. It took me a while but don’t get it wrong, it’s a an amazing story that worths taking its time. It’s a story about fantastic details that build up a srange city. A few spots in the plot didn’t convince me though: Raule, the doctor who seems the protagonist in the beggining, does not appear much in the story. Also the story takes about 80 pages to start but, as I said, I dont think the important here is the plot. Gwynn is an excellent character, full of nuances. And yet the best, the little things: snakes crawling around the night clubs, the river, full of crocodiles, the man with the flower on his belly, a tiger appearing amongst the shadows of the night, mysterious fortunetellers and drinking brandy while watching Tareda's dances. I almost was there too. And a great writer indeed, I hope to read another K.J Bishop book soon...
