I did enjoy this book, and liked the way the stories/characters seemed to mirror each other spanning across time. I'm not quite sure that I actually 'got' what it was all about though LOL! I was a little confused, but this didn't make it any less enjoyable to read. Thanks for sharing Lucy. Posting on now to turnpages who is next on the list.

I finished this yesterday and have been trying to think of something positive to say about it but have failed miserably. I just didn't 'get' the book. I couldn't get interested in it at all. Bits of it engaged me for a while but on the whole I'd have to say I didn't enjoy this one.

Still, that's another one crossed off the 1001-list.

Thanks for sharing it Lucy. I have Vilda's address so I should get this in the post very soon.

At first I had a very hard time getting into the story. I even wrote to shimmy-crazy for the address as I was giving it up. But then it really caught me! I like the parallell stories in time. But I have to confess that I didn´t get the ending. I realise it can´t be discussed here though! :).

Now finally, moving on to UK.

4 out of 10

It took a while to get into this one and although I found it quite interesting I couldn't quite get to grips with the writing style.

mrbaggins1 has asked to be skipped so posted off to Bug2004 today (7/7/09)
