thinking back on this book, it certainly has its brilliant bits. but reading it, i often felt frustrated. the story of Marie is spliced with stories of others who have experienced some form of radiation or irradiation. i felt the use of these other stories was abrupt and knocked me out of the main plot. i wish they had been included in a different way. the illustrations are often amazing, but i love cyanotypes (so might be biased). reading this book is definitely an experience, and i appreciate that. but, overall, there was something missing for me.
