A lyrical and cryptic story - almost a fairy tale of sorts - told with haunting, dream-like reflection via enigmatic Clara and “her” Eustace. The actual action in the plot feels slight; a pivotal moment connected to something extraordinary…. but what the extraordinary is remains veiled with only clues and suggestions that I am still pondering after the story’s end. Who is Clara? What is Clara? The real richness lies in the slow exploration of the characters and their revelations of tragedy, love and magic. I loved this book but I am left wanting more answers than I was given. I was not ready to stop learning more. The two narrators who speak for Eustace and Clara are magnificent.
Very hard to follow, rushed through the ‘exciting’ parts but detailed and dragged out the monotonous parts.
