I wanted to like this book, but it just didn't do it for me. I felt like I was just swimming through a tangle of words, trying to figure out what was going on. This felt like writing for writing's sake, like showing off you know about words, rather than to properly tell an interesting story.
3.5, almost four. Beautiful translation.
2.5 stars. The structure of this book is interesting but I frequently lost interest.
