really liked it

First book from Jonathan Carroll I've read and I'm hooked. One of those books you want to read line per line so that you can savour everything what the author has written and hopefully it get stuck in your head for a long time. Imaginative, creative and creepy at times, Carroll has written of the most interesting time traveling+romance+fantasy stories I've read and takes us to another world. The subject about life, death and what happens in between is beautifully written with bizarre metaphor, opinions and purgatory 'codes' (water sandwich) that simply doesn't make sense. First book, definitely not the last. Jonathan Carroll's book is one you should pick up from the dusty library shelves

Quotes natercopia Liked

Jonathan Carroll
“Patience never wants Wonder to enter the house: because Wonder is a wretched guest. It uses all of you but is not careful with what is most fragile or irreplaceable. If it breaks you, it shrugs and moves on. Without asking, Wonder often brings along dubious friends: doubt, jealousy, greed. Together they take over; rearrange the furniture in every one of your rooms for their own comfort. They speak odd languages but make no attempt to translate for you. They cook strange meals in your heart that leave odd tastes and smells. When they finally go are you happy or miserable? Patience is always left holding the broom.”
Jonathan Carroll, White Apples
