Rash's writing has been highly praised, one much-quoted description calling it "gorgeous and brutal". As I tried to get into this book, I considered that the brutality was directed against the reader. The prose and the storytelling in Above the Waterfall were murky, obscuring people and events rather than revealing them. I had to work far too hard to understand what was going on in the lives of indistinguishable characters that I didn't care about. I didn't make it very far before giving up on the book, and on Rash, for good.
