Mystery Review: 'Alison Wonderland' by Helen Smith
OK, I’ll be honest: life’s too short to read stuff that just isn’t working. I don’t know whether this is brilliant and I just don’t get it, or whether it really is the stream-of-consciousness writing exercise it appears to me to be, or whether it’s all terribly edgy and post-modernist (or something) and I don’t have the right receptors in my brain for it, but it doesn’t do anything for me, so I’m abandoning ship. Other readers, cleverer than me or more tolerant of weirdness, might very well get on better with it. One star for a DNF.
