    " lowry's style was very hard to follow. it's not that I couldn't follow the constant symbolism - I got that. it was the very abrubt jumping from one thing to another that hugged me. "

    " My absolute favorite novel. Like Ulysses with more heart. Linguistic madness; tragedy at its finest. Everyone needs to read this. Underrated is an understatement, big time. If you love this novel, check out Pursued By Furies , an amazing biography of Lowry (who's pretty interesting, to say the least). "
