    Wonderful

    A nesting egg of a book. Stories within stories, showing great imagination and an unconventional narrative. An adventourous read fit for anyone looking for something different but rewarding

    Escapism At Its Best

    A beautiful little book of fable-like stories, characters and scenes that meld into one another, and shifts in space and time that are both awkward and completely natural at the same time.<BR/><BR/>I can imagine some readers might be put off by the non-linear nature of the story, or maybe consider it "gimmicky" - but for me it worked very well. At it's best, the book not only perfectly captures altered logic of cause and effect that we see in our dreams, but in fact creates a dreamlike state in the reader that lingers for quite some time after putting the book down for the day. That's one of the things I liked best about it, I'd read just a little bit and move on to something else but my mood and outlook was always altered in a rather pleasant way by what I'd read. It makes any kind of surprise more welcoming.<BR/><BR/>Another great aspect of this book is the fact that while it certainly falls under the category of "experimental fiction" in terms of its non-linear plot and characters that seem to exist simultaneously as multiple people at once.. it's still not only easy to read, but has the style and atmosphere of an old world fairy tale. In fact this match between the almost childlike prose associate with fables and the "dream logic" that holds the events together is a perfect combination.
