's review

it was amazing
bookshelves: fiction

I'm tempted to re-read this immediately, taking notes this time to see what connections I missed because there must be some. I don't usually like fiction that deliberately creates puzzles for the reader--there are usually plenty in the margins / allegorical implications already--but in this case, the pleasure of reading so much strange imagery was enough to make the suspended interpretation of how it all fit together worthwhile. It was a slow and confusing read, but Wolf in the Sepulcher, Blind striding into the forest, Alexander's delirium(?), the story of Sphinx and Mermaid, etc., etc.--there's just so much to like along the way.
