This is a weird, creepy little book. It's a slow-starter, but I began to enjoy it about a third of the way through. I particularly enjoyed its treatment of gender, mental illness, 19th century medical treatments of women, and lesbianism. The continual repetition of water was understandable, but also annoying at times. Parts seemed redundant and could have been edited a bit better. However, I liked the moodiness of the novella, which in some way reminded me of Gilman's "The Yellow Wallpaper," to which this work owes much debt.
