Den här romanen gav mig ingenting. Den kändes helt obefogad, korkade karaktärer och sentimental handling med vändningar lika tvära som en supertankers.

Dessutom: på svenska säger man inte "brukade" lika ofta som man på engelska säger "used to". Om inte översättaren är uppmärksam på detta... blir det sämre. ( )

Ibland i mina drömmar stiger du upp ur ett kärr, hel, yngre än jag minns dig, nländande, skarp, och jag följer dig in i rökiga rum, överväldigad av känslav av att var i närheten av en otämjd varelse, full av ljus, omöjlig att kontrollera.
