Synopsis

Sir Able is back and the story continues just as discombabulated and confusing as the first book.

 

My Thoughts

I hated this. While the style was as discomfiting, stupid, confusing and all around idiotic as the first book,at least the first book was original. This was just crap.

And at over 600 pages, it was grueling.  This confirms that I’m not a Gene Wolfe fan, nor will I ever be.

I have to admit, I don’t know WHY I didn’t DNF this. I definitely should have. It had all the earmarks. I blame it on my cousin who highly recommended both of these books. I think I kept waiting for it to “get better”.

The only good thing is now it is over. Wow, that is pretty bad isn’t it?
