All the way through this book, I really couldn't decide if I liked it or not, but it kept me reading to the end. So I guess I did. Definitely different style of writing, it was a refreshing change, but not overly challenging to get into.
A very unusual story. Kind of a fairy tale/fable written by a man about the woman he loved to explain her many moods/personalities and behaviors. I enjoyed it - but I like quirky stories.
Like another reviewer said while reading this book, I wasnt sure if I liked it, or not. It was compelling enough to keep me reading and turning pages, but by the end of the book, I think I felt a bit empty about it.
Its an easy and quick read. To me, its kind of like a combination of The Life of Pi and Sybil, but not written as well as either of those books.
It is difficult to write a review of the actually story line, without spoilers. Perhaps it will suffice to say that it is both the story of the complexities of women, in general, and a philosophical love story. It's mostly narrated by a mans journal notes to his daughter. [By this I do not mean to imply that the book is written in the form of journal notes because it is not.] The prose is a bit choppy, in my opinion.
Did I enjoy the book? Well, kind of. Its interesting enough to be somewhat of a page-turner, and even though it left me a bit underwhelmed, the uncommon writing technique and story-line was interesting.
Do I recommend this book? If you are a fan of creative writing, then the answer is yes. If you are more of a mainstream literary fan, the answer would probably me no.
