Sushicat | 804 comments The tale is fractured, jumping around in time and place, a dialogue with a voice that may not be real - Fever Dream is the perfect title for the tale. A woman recollects the few days she spent on holiday in a rural place, where something happened to her and her life is now failing.

Though it may be difficult to read, it reflects perfectly the state of the woman and the way it is told also fits perfectly to what caused it and the way society deals with it. It's far away and if one doesn't look too closely, one is able to ignore it.

Sushicat | 804 comments I feel the same. I first rated it 4 then upped to 4.5 now thinking it should be a solid 5... There's so much there unsaid and yet present.
