It’s just the same like mine. THe science fiction aspect is done better in other novels, though that is fine as it is not really what the book is about. This was so intriguing and so bizarre. Book ratings by Goodreads.
Be the first to discover new talent! Wharton died on October 29, of an infection frxnky contracted while being hospitalized for blood-pressure problems. The different fonts help to seperate the different aspects of the story.
Another masterpiece of Wharton’s imagination and literary genius; beauty in every word; suprising characters. Unquestionably one of my favorite books, by one of my favorite authors; magic or crazy?

It is hard to find, and took me several years to get a good copy, but I read it in one night, and found myself enjoying it. I’m still not really sure if I loved it or didn’t like it. I was captivated and read it all on a plane, but it is absolutely one of the weirdest books I’ve ever read.
