crumbly for recitation, dulled contours

3 stars

Many of these are crumbly sentences better suited to recitation, being shored into sense through practiced emphasis or author’s own knowledge, than to quick reading at a remove. (Not exactly a complaint).

The text in general is repetitive, making the big anxiety‐dulled plot pivots all the more frustratingly redundant to trace up close, as they each gouge the same contour.

But can Raynor Winn describe a sky!

Review of 'Wild Silence' on 'Goodreads'

3 stars

Bits of this are really good; I enjoyed where it filled in or even returned to places of the salt path. Overall felt like a meandering conversation with a dinner guest of a family friend with all the goodness and badness of that. I hope Moth keeps going okay; and am grateful such a shy lady has been willing to share their world with us.
