  • Eyes wide open

    A vast underground library in sumptuous surroundings, inhabited by cats. On the shores of a sea of honey. An undergrad who finds his earlier life is the subject of a book. Timeless concepts personified, and a never-ending story of separated lovers. A universe furnished with the myths, icons, and creations of centuries of storytelling. The narrative thread is constantly sidelined by histories, fables and the quests of various characters. The story does end, but short of a resolution. There's just a vague promise of a positive outcome. Someday. If you're looking for a beginning, middle and end you will end up exasperated. Think of it as an extraordinary tapestry, a dreamtime quilt you pull up to your chin as you drift off. Beautiful, sensuous and unique

  • A very beautiful tale

    The Starless Sea is a beautiful tale about story telling. It’s not a terribly fast paced booked nor does it pretend that the fate of the world hinges on the derving-do of the protagonists. The dream-like quality of the setting and the slow but steady rhythm of the story should appeal to everyone who liked Erin Morgenstern’s previous book, The Night Circus. It is a book to be read on a slow winter day in front of a hot chimney or in a comfy, quiet corner of a library. And it does have a most satisfying ending; few books have left me as satisfied after the last paragraph as this one.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Meandering tale

    The tale luxuriates in storytelling & myth, legend and folk law, meandering, confusing self indulgent mix of reality and fantasy. Enjoyed initially but enthusiasm was stretched too far.

  • The Starless Sea too much honey

    I got a bit stuck in the honey on this one. I need a bit of reality!
