This a book you could read in a few hours (maybe less), yet I got halfway through and abandoned it.
It's the story of a man in a coma... or is it? As a writing exercise, I'm sure it works quite well, as a novel, not so much.
There are graphic plates scattered throughout to illustrate the novel's progress -- though arguably, they just serve to further confuse. For a tiny little hardcover book with big print, it doesn't need pictures to pad it out.
I'm not sure I'll ever finish this one.
