I do love the way he writes, but to be honest, I'm less than thrilled with were this story ended up. There's an intriguing introduction to a fantastical parallel world, but its an unsatisfactory interplay by stories end. It feels rather mundane and unexceptional as if the dank, dark world the protagonist frequently slips into is just another part of his every day life. Perhaps this is the point. But given what its compelling opening, this shift is frustrating and feels lazy, as if the writer couldn't find the right way to end it and just let it peter out. In any case the book is still worth a read and I will most definately search for a more satisfying work from the author.
