An intriguing premise can always catch my eye, and having a character whose face changes pattern daily whether they wish it to or not, was definitely one. And even as basically simple as the cover image for Clown is, I felt it strongly and strikingly conveyed most of the mood of the story: a kind of aimless wandering of Clown, both physically and emotionally.

That being said, it’s that same quality which made it rather difficult for me to progress through the book. Especially, at over 450 pages of roughly the same feel, I didn’t experience a sense of purpose, a build-up, climax or true resolution even if there are some scenes and characters who brightened or added complexity to the narrative. Overall, I just felt a number of revisions could have added focus and drive, which certainly can always be challenging to any author. Maybe I've missed the point of the work, but it's listing as Book One suggests there will be more and many of the questions might finally be answered.
