A little short
I have never read anything by this author before but like to try different things on for size. This book is quite the enigma as you end up not really any the wiser after reading it. The time period is a little ambiguous as nothing is really described in any detail. I enjoyed the book however felt like it should have been longer. There wasn't enough substance in parts and I don't really feel like it was satisfactorily explained by the end. It's worth a look if you are looking for something that doesn't need too much thought.
