Just finished it. At times I felt totally absorbed in the visual and social richness and at times frustrated at Rose's passivity. I'm never sure if a well written novel with a partially resolved outcome leaves me feeling better or worse than a "feel good" (/bad) well resolved run-of- the-mill work.
Me too. Now I have to review it for KZN Literary Tourism. Trying to work out why I found it ultimately unsatisfying? I also found Rose passive. I think the strength of the book lies in its attention to detail. Nudelman is observant, and paints an interesting picture of Oberon - but somehow the book felt like it was skating on the surface of Rose's experience? Unless the author aimed to convey a certain ethereal quality, within the heroine?
