You’ll need a dual Ph.D. in literature and particle physics to make heads and tails of every crazy thing in this book, but you don’t need anything more than love for reading to enjoy and appreciate the extensive knowledge that went into writing it.
Still, better brush up on your quantum mechanics and Arabian folklore before delving into this one, or you’ll be sorry.
|Poetic, flowery, surreal prose||Show don’t tell goes to such extent that you’ll be lucky if you’ll even understand wtf is going on most of the time|
|Extensive knowledge of both literature and science||Extremely hard and exhausting to read|
|Mind-blowing, super-complicated setting of post-human future|
|Captivating surreal plot full of twists|
|Complicated, well-thought out story inspired by Arabian fairy tales this time (of all things)|
|Interesting, likable characters|
