Sigh. Here, presented with sincerity and talent, is a complex work that I don't care about at all. I can see a plot, more or less, but the pieces don't seem to add up to it. I don't know what I'm doing or why. (Contrast earlier review, For A Change
, where I did
know what I was supposed to be doing, but not why. That had momentum. This doesn't.)
The imagery is pretty good, and I enjoyed the writing. The plot seems to branch a lot -- there are multiple, mutually exclusive exits from some of the scenes -- but I wasn't inspired to explore and see how it all fit together.
Needs more synonyms.
