Unreliable Narrative...


As I was reading this book I was reminded time and again of Jo Walton's Among Others. The parallels are quite pronounced in that both books feature a damaged protagonist and a narrative that might be real or might just be the unreliable world-view of the main character. Additionally, both books feature some truly wonderful writing. The details of each story are quite different but the underlying exploration of reality juxtaposed with fantasy is where we find many similarities.

If you have read and enjoyed either of these books, I heartily recommend checking out the other one as well.
