Bones of the Moon

Last night I finished Bones of the Moon by Jonathan Carroll.

It was .... well, pretty interesting. There were two stories told; one in a dream-world, the other in the "real" world. The realworld stuff was great. Couldn't get enough of it. The dream world stuff was just pretty wierd. I know that in one's dreams, things don't always make sense; that's fine.But in here I just got a big sense of ... WTF?

That said, Carroll's descriptive abilities are very good. i like how he takes two ore more seemingly unrelated things and slams them together for a single metaphor. This much alone made it a rather enjoyable read; part of the book were almost poetic in their descriptions. I like that.

I shan't say any more, as I don't want to post spoilers.
