I struggled to get through this book. I liked it enough to want to finish but not enough to want to read it. I gave up on it a few times, only to come back and grind through for a while longer. The writing is at times beautiful, at times so determined to be profound that it's meaningless. The setting was the best thing by far, an interesting time and place to spend some reading time, though sometimes bogged down in detailed description that detracted even from this one strength. The main character was entirely unsympathetic for me. Aside from the early scenes when she lost her family, I never felt anything for her. The tone of the whole novel is very emotionally remote, which is appropriate for this first person story about an emotionally remote woman, but it makes it difficult to enjoy reading a dense, long, convoluted book. The story itself is implausible and ridiculous at times, again appropriately for the intended parallels with opera but again making it difficult for me to enjoy. I was relieved to have finished. I'm unlikely to read anything else by this author.… (lisätietoja)

DNF. There are no quotations which makes it difficult to distinguish when people are speaking. This type of writing (no quotation marks) is very difficult for me but I've heard good things if that type of writing style doesn't bother you.

Didn't read them all, good but many were depressing.

I would've liked it more if it wasn't written in such a distant voice.
