Two stars, read in December 2017
Bewildering, to be honest.
Interpersonal relationships are difficult to package in words, especially when nothing much happens, it’s all just conversations and body language and internal struggles. But this seemed deliberately opaque and kept me on the outside, unable to get a connection with any of the characters.
Words and concepts are used nonsensically; there were moments of clarity and occasional flashes of recognizable human experience, but I also spent a significant amount of time rereading to verify that no, there really was no connection between that sentence and the one before it, so what the hell were any of these people saying. Skimmed toward the end and it was actually marginally more coherent that way.
