Amazing.

by MusicIsMyDaddy on Nov 4, 2007

Very stark, harrowing look at extreme isolation. This is something of a mystery story, very similar to the Ruined Map, in that all of the characters are extremely decietful and not very pleasant people. If you are an Abe fan, this is an excellent book to add to your collection, and if you are new to the amazing world he creates, you couldn't do much better than this as a jumping-off point, with the possible exception of Woman in the Dunes.
