" I finished reading this over a week ago, I'm a little in the dark on remembering much of it. I know that doesn't bode well for the book, or at least my reading of it, maybe. The book was good, I see why it gets all those literary recommendations as the word play is fun. Were I got lost, as in a 'who gives a shit' kind of way, is when the chapters turned into a rebuttal of other books on the life of Sebastian Knight. What glowed in the book was when the writer told stories, you felt the cold of Russia and the living with his brother. "
