You fall into the first half of this novel like you would with an old fairy tale, which makes it even more shocking when this tale turns frightening.

I have not finished the book yet, but what I like is that everything starts in an ordinary life of two intellactually equal people. And next something magical suppose to happen...Plus jokes had proven to be funny even for people with very bad sence of humor...So far I love it...

After descovering the book back in print I purchased it in complet deleruim. At home I quickly set to reading it, and to my disapointment found it something other then what I intitaly thought. In spite of my words please do not be discuraged. It is a fantastic, well writen peice of work, embued with life. I thought the plot to be something inspired by the twilight Zone. I would have rated my review with 3 and 1/2 stars, but that is imposable, and I feel it is undeserveing of 4 stars.

Those who have been reading Jonathan Carroll works for years can only rejoice that his first novel is finally back in print. In England it is being re-released as a 'Fantasy Masterpiece' and there is no question that it is. If you like Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Mark Danielewski, Neal Stephenson and/or Jonathan Lethem (just to mention a few) then buy this book quick and fall in love with one of the great visionary writers of our time. If you're just starting with Carroll, it's a perfect place to start. Brilliant.

I really dont know what all the hype was about. It is wholly predictable from the first strange occurance in Galen and the writing is cliched through and through. It seemed as though the concept for this book was developed as carroll continued to write and that once he reached the beginning of the conclusion, it just stopped. If you are looking for a similar book to beat this one try something by tom robbins, perhaps Still Life with Woodpecker. All i can say in favor for it is that usually when i decide i dont like a book I put it down and start another...but with this one i felt somewhat compelled to keep reading until i had finished. But I didnt enjoy it the whole ride.
