The books in Alexandria Quartet would definitely make it to my list of top ten hardest to follow novels. I feel like I would have enjoyed the story and characters more if the damn thing at least narrated the events in sequence.
|Describes the exotic city of Alexandria||Overwritten flowery prose|
|Thought-provoking on free sexuality||Overly poetic composition makes the story hard to follow|
|Slow, lethargic pace|
|Both characters and plot are filtered through some sort of haze making it hard to care about either of them|
