There is nothing bad about this book. It tells you just enough and eclipses and obscures everything else.

The only flaw is that there isn't more of it.

I adored this book, from the initial (incredibly) violent opening, to the chaotic ending. I would not claim to understand what was going on for significant parts of the story, and I absolutely did not care. The shared past of the characters, the darkness they were either surviving or were drawn back to, these were sketched in minimalist detail, adding to an atmosphere of unreality.

The viewpoint characters are regularly unreliable, not least because at least one of them has had some kind of control put on their thoughts. It is coercive and, at times, downright terrifying, in how one character is forced to respond to another.

Viewpoints vary between humans and AI. Because it is a far future in space, sometimes those are closer to each other than to current humans, and are joyfully alien.

I'm not putting in content warnings, but recommend people who are cautious about violence and body horror to check what other people have said.

Violent, gory, sadistic. Almost incomprehensible prose. It took about a quarter of the book for me to start piecing together what the hell was going on.

$10 words every other paragraph, sometimes every other sentence, sometimes every other word:

“The tenebrosity doesn’t, however, linger. With every invocation of Verdigris’ name, it sallows, lightening to the juvenile colors of recent ecchymosis, that suppurating purple-yellow of ruined capillaries and beat-up flesh, an exhausted pigment which, fortunately, does not linger.”


There are three or four lines of dialog that advance the plot interspersed between dozens of paragraphs about each character’s internal state, world view, history, whatever. We get it, we get it already. Maya’s totally in thrall to Rita, even though Rita’s a monster and doesn’t give a shit about Maya. And yes, the writing’s luscious, even though pretentious, but honestly, let’s get this show on the road.

Grungy, obfuscating, irritating as hell. Finally, at the end, I loved it.

Ojala haver tingut temps per llegir-m’el del tirón.

Dos relats genial que transmeten un imaginari i unes sensacions entre esgarrifoses i intrigants.

Tinc ganes de llegir alguna novela de la mateixa autora i de saber més del Persons.
