From the Mouth of the Whale

From the Mouth of the Whale - Sjón, Victoria Cribb An occasionally interesting but often a bit frustrating read. It could've been more than it was - but I can see why it garnered so much praise. There is something undoubtedly magical here... but not magical enough. The magic of the story and of the writing is intermittent for me and I don't see what there is to recommend the book. It's got great moments, great stories - but as a whole, it's a little frustrating in the bad way.More thoughts of this kind at RB: http://wp.me/pGVzJ-kX
