39.0% "Barnes builds builds builds it at an even pace - 12-15 years in 50 pages; and then in a single paragraph the story hurtles forward 15 years! What the...!?"

63.0% "Such simple story. But such complex meanings it envelops. Never before have I met a narrator with such severe dichotomies!"

79.0% "There, he gives it to you... this is what the book is about: new affective states reopening blocked-off neural pathways."

79.0% "The book has a honestly-consciously-unreliable narrator, peeved a bit by the flimsy ground given him by his own memories. Even deeper, the book is about the difficulty of documentation, rather, the difficulty of writing. One can, indeed, read the main character's musings on remembering as musings on writing itself."
