|THIS IS A READ-ONLY ARCHIVE FROM THE SORABJI.COM MESSAGE BOARDS (1995-2016).|
my friend Alys gave it to me for my birthday in 2003 and I've Finally read it. Really I don't think I would have read it if it hadn't been a gift, and I felt kind of obligated.
The first 80% of the book is this introspective, view-of-the-world, inside his Head kind of book, if you know what I mean. then all of a sudden, for like twenty pages, it goes hardcore science-fiction. I was reading with my face all screwed up in confusion and amazement at the turn of events.
then, right near the end, everything makes sense again, and you kind of understand the hardcore sci-fi.
in a way that may not be much of a connection at all, it kind of reminded me of the film "Lost in Translation". In both cases I went through the entire thing going "What is this? What is this about?" and it wasn't until rightattheend that I actually liked it.
I didn't love it too much while it was going on, but upon reflection I think it was pretty good. it would probably be a great book to re-read.
ANy boday else read this?
