This is an odd tale! It’s out there, people. It’s a great story don’t get me wrong, but I don’t know whether to read it as an allegory or a metaphor. The cover caught my attention while I was scrolling through my library’s eBook selection. That cover is so pretty! It’s a quick read, too.
This is a strange story where a writer encounters a story-creature, which uses him to facilitate a bizarre invasion of sorts. The story-creature creates an entire world. This story contains life and death. It also about transformation, growing, and becoming. The world is constantly changing in twisted and unimaginable ways. It is very much a think piece that will leave your head spinning. The writing is smooth and poetic. My mind is blown.
