Paul Tremblay’s name is one that’s been on my list to catch up with for about a year. I’ve had enough personal recommendations from people I trust to warrant digging in, so I was happy to actually be assigned one of his stories for this project. I had no idea what to expect.
I still don’t.
Giving it the benefit of the doubt, I’d say it was over my head. Not giving it that…
Liked the premise – woman consults a private detective to find out how/why her left-hand fingers were stolen (and where they went) and who’s fingers she now has on her hand.
But, jeez, there’s a lot of point-of-view switching and time-line-perspective changing that just confused me.
I gave it a few read-throughs, but yeah, never had the whole thing jump up at me like one of those 3-D pictures that you have to let your eyes unfocus to see.
I get the feeling that there was one of those illusions hidden in there and I missed it.
Yup. I got nothin.
