I am the kind of reader that once I start a book I MUST finish it. This book shouldn't have taken me more than five days max but took over two weeks to complete! The author really needed to break the book up into chapters and define the timeline better. The incessant narrative by the main character and the way she constantly jumped about in the timeline was just too much for me. It took me six weeks to read the Quincunx (which I DEFINITELY don't recommend to ANYONE!) and that was a serious chore. Unfortunately I felt the same way about this book as well. It felt like listening to one of those people who obsess about themselves and don't care that you've fallen asleep during their self-absorbed monologue and I found it just about as interesting. :-(Was this review helpful?

First attempt at writing a full-length novel and I felt the author should have started with something less strange and less complex. This is supposed to be a psychological ghost story in the H.P. Lovecraft tradition, but the task was probably a little daunting for an inexperienced author. He gets an A+ for effort, but the novel was just way too slow and boring. The narrative vehicle worked well for 19th century novels like "Wuthering Heights" but probably a little too ambitious as well as outdated for a contemporary novel.Was this review helpful?

This could have been shortened instead of being 300+ pages. Irritating at times, but once I started I really wanted to find out the conclusion. Disappointed in that. Author could have gotten point across more quickly and could have laid out a much better story.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
