Read full description of the books:
This is one of those books that you're forced to read slowly. At least I felt that way. It took me a while to get into it's flow but eventually I did and I began to appreciate it more once I did.
There's little dialogue (and what little there is is rather elliptic). The narrative contains a lot of exposition, with long descriptive passages, often laced with dream like imagery. It requires a lot of concentration and patient reading to get the most out of it.
I won't attempt to describe the plot, you can get an adequate taste of it's strange character by reading the blurb on the back, but I would categorise it as weird theological fiction. The plot is slow to unfold which might frustrate some readers who prefer the story to develop more quickly. In places it can feel positively belaboured as the author stretches out the descriptions of imagery and moods.
On the back Thomas Ligotti is praises this book describing it as Cisco's masterpiece (which is high praise indeed coming from him) and I haven't read enough of his work to comment but I can still not decide whether his style of weird is really for me.
