Ema Algernon, you have some insightful observations here, and I like the way you balance positive and negative aspects. For me it was amazing, but then I haven't read much literature of this kind. I didn't even notice the bad parts, I must admit, but reading your complaints I realize they are justified for the most part. The novel wasn't packed with action, you are right, yet there was a constant tension.
The more I read, the more I tend to readjust the rating for some previously read books, but I won't touch this one for the time being. :)


Algernon (Darth Anyan) I wanted to like it more, and the loneliness of Neville was really well played in the book, but I found out I couldn't put to rest the numerous questions each of his scientific theories raised. The ending wa the best part of the whole novel. As an influence on other writers, I can see it coming close to Bram Stoker and Mary Shelley

Oh, Algernon, but your reviews are really good and well done! Please keep writing, for us, for you or for posterity! I may not read each review that you write, but the ones I do I find wonderful.

Jaylen Wow didn't even realize the publication of this novel, just made it that much better!


Algernon (Darth Anyan) It's a classic, and I hope it will remain in print for future generations.
