Andromeda Klein | [Frank Portman]

Andromeda Klein

Andromeda Klein is a quiet, booky girl with an unexciting life. Until her world takes a turn for the weird. Strangely and suddenly Andromeda's tarot card readings have begun to predict events with bizarrely literal accuracy. It seems impossible, but it looks like her once-upon-a-time-partner-inoccultism, Daisy Wasserstrom, has begun to harass her. Which wouldn't be quite as strange if Daisy hadn't died the year before. But what is weird is getting arguably worse.

Publisher's Summary

Andromeda Klein is a quiet, booky girl with an unexciting life - until her world takes a turn for the weird. Strangely and suddenly, Andromeda's tarot card readings have begun to predict events with bizarrely literal accuracy.

It seems impossible, but it looks like her once-upon-a-time-partner-inoccultism, Daisy Wasserstrom, has begun to harass her. Which wouldn't be quite as strange if Daisy hadn't died the year before.

But what is weird is getting arguably worse. Omens, dreams, cards hidden inside a hollowed-out book, and images from a file of comics drawn by a previous inhabitant of her family's suburban duplex, are all coming together to contain hints of buried truths concerning her family, her circle of friends; her cat, and her secret, estranged, much older and forbidden boyfriend-in-theory. And as Andromeda tries to figure it all out, she finds herself in a whole world of creepy you couldn't even begin to make up.

What the Critics Say

"With impish prose and ridiculously researched detail, Portman fully fleshes a one-of-a-kind character." (Booklist)

    "Hmmm..."
    What disappointed you about Andromeda Klein?

    I kept expecting something to happen. The entire story felt as if there was something exciting just around the next corner. I listened to the whole thing in this vain and by the end I was left with a frustrated and slightly cheated feel.


    What will your next listen be?

    Next on the listening list: The Paladin Project, Miranda Hart's Is it Just me and a re-listen to my old reliables of The Infernal Devices series and Dick Francis books.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Picked a better book; she did very well with what she had.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Andromeda Klein?

    It isn't what I would cut out that is the problem with this book- it's what isn't there! Plot twists, depth to characters, the basic mountain of a story (beginning, middle, climax, end); all are missing!


    Any additional comments?

    This book had so much promise but I won't be listening to any more from this author.
