A very strange, but atmospheric book. Some of the skipping forward in time got confusing at time (I never did figure out exactly how old the 'daughter' was at some points), and most of the characters were pretty unpleasant, but I still enjoyed a lot of the story. And of course, just reading a book by a Greek author after having visited Greece myself was cool :-)
