How would I describe this book?
Secondary world masturbation fantasy.
Yes I know I think I'm very clever. But seriously, it's like someone had a dream and decided to write a novel around it, and then kept on adding more and more confusing dream sequences. And then sat back and said I am brilliant, publish me!
I eventually got tired of reading description after description of the dreamlike landscapes and skimmed the last 100 pages. No regrets.
