    " I liked this a lot. It's one I'd have to read six more times before I could give it a fair review, though. Wow. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tamara Rickerts | 1/12/2014

    " Interesting. I probably should re-read it, maybe I would understand it better. Or maybe it isn't to be understood. There were some quotes I liked that I wish I had marked. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David Cheshire | 1/7/2014

    " A way-out, semi-fantasy, dark, dream-like but oddly satisfying. A man goes on a journey but the self-discovery involved, although in one way literal, is unexpected and oddly moving. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shaun | 12/18/2013

    " This is an interesting book. It's a bit like the TV show Lost, which is a bit of a puzzle. I enjoyed the trip the main character did during this book, although the ending was a bit lame for me. "

    " It is Kafkaesque and a little disturbing but I am glad I read it. "

    " nederlandse titel: 'schaduwzijde'. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Annie | 7/29/2012

    " This was a strange little philosophical book about a boy going on a journey of self-discovery. I have no idea what happened at the end so it was a bit of a let-down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bailey Meeker | 7/18/2012

    " This is a book that will make you think. One young man's journey from apathy to a new way of thinking about the world. Lost in a severely repressed country that is never named, he becomes engulfed in a struggle to understand the world and himself, even as he tries to find his way home. "

    " I suppose this book is about something, but I'm not sure what and I wasn't inspired the strain through the muddy message to find out. I suppose this is William Nicholson's personal search for meaning in life, but basically it is a lot of running around for nothing, which is maybe the point. "

    " A philosophical coming of age story in a violent country. "
