About the book.
A peculiar book. Very much so. At first I found the book was very slow in picking up speed. Perhaps it was necessary to solidify the background of the main story but I feel it could have been done a bit quicker considering it’s not a very long story. That’s why I cut off half a star.
All in all however it was a very interesting and engaging story, painting a remarkable (peculiar) world inside our world. An enjoyable read for certain.
Note – there be spoilers and such after the cut, so proceed at your own convenience…
The images used in the book are definitely a nice idea to complement/supplement the story. At times, for me, they were a bit too distracting, taking the focus away from the actual reading and continuation. The images do fit into the story. I can even imagine that Mr Riggs obtained the idea for the story because of those images although I doubt it happened that way.
Unfortunately this is one of the books where, again, the digital file is more expensive than the paperback version. It’s something I’ll never understand.
