What’s a book? What a book!
A slow read for a book of this length, but in a good way.
Frequent pauses for thought as a word, sentence, passage prompted the most unexpected and random memories to rise to the surface.
Growing up somewhere in the south west, sketches from the classroom and life as a student flow freely into the fantastical worlds of Tarquin Superbus and the sewing sister in a continuous stream of consciousness hinting that one thing can lead to another, can’t it. Yes, it can.
Disturbing, exhilarating and evocative. Powerful, imaginative and amusing.
I, we, and she. Reading, writing and possessing.
This is a masterful and cleverly written book that will stay with me for a long time.
“So, I expect you’ve already read Checkout 19, eh?” asked a friend. No, but I have now and chances are I will again.
Check it out!

I sometimes didn't know what was going on—but that was perfectly OK, and even, dare I say, right. I feel there's some mystery at the end that I'll spend the rest of my life unsuccessfully, yet sort of thrillingly, trying to figure out.
