Journal Entry 1 by Sherlockfan from Upper Hutt, Wellington Province New Zealand on Monday, April 10, 2006
"Wandering through dreams and nightmares from Praslin Islands to Mauritius and finally to England, the author unfolds the troubled lives of her forebears, cursed by racial prejudice, sexual inhibition and recurrent mental illness. This is a powerfully and carefully written expurgation of personal feelings, drawing the reader into a landscape like that of a Dali painting."
from "Scotland on Sunday"

I couldn't get into this book even though it had been recommended to me by a cousin whose reading tastes I generally applaud. Took me a long time even to attempt it but couldn't even get to my usual cut-off point of 60 pages.
I'm passing it on hoping someone might enjoy it.

Journal Entry 3 by wingfuturecatwing from Christchurch, Canterbury New Zealand on Monday, April 16, 2007
A seriously weird book - I had no idea what was going on for large chunks of it. There were a few parts (mostly descriptive passages) that I enjoyed, but mostly I was just confused, and really only kept reading it to see if anything got cleared up in the end. It didn't.
