I’m glad I have now read this but I was a little… well, disappointed isn’t really the word. I’m not sure what is. I was expecting the slight ickiness of a lot of magic realism but, as the quotations inside say, it’s not for the faint of heart or stomach and I found bits of it a bit much. I was also a bit let down by the ending although it obviously fitted the work. In summary – glad I read it but A Bit Much For Me.
