Full disclosure: I'm mostly a non-fiction reader/listener. When I do consume fiction, it's usually mysteries and detective stuff. But lately I've been ripping through--and really enjoying-- a lot of contemporary fiction.
So when this came up on the new fiction list I gave it a chance. It held my attention for a while--the writing is excellent--poetic and evocative--and for a while the plot kept me going. Or more the lack of plot--as in, trying to figure out what the deal was with the characters and what their connection was. Once that mystery was solved, the narration just got too bogged down with inner dialogue--brilliantly insightful stuff to be sure, but still--too meandering and fragmented to hold my attention.
Maybe I'll pick this back up someday, but not anytime soon.
