Arias's fiction is beautiful and bare, although the novel itself can easily lose you. The transitions between his dream world and his reality are never defined. While this is refreshing at first, it becomes tedious to keep the worlds separate.

I especially enjoyed his characterizations, his artful passages near the end of the novel, and the underlying themes at the heart of the book - though centered on death, the novel was rarely a gloomy one.

I don't think readers typically review samples -- this is my first time doing so -- but I thought it worth mentioning that the sample for this book consists entirely of a lengthy academic introduction to the genre. There is no excerpt of the text of the novel itself. The book may be a fascinating read, but one could not possibly know that based on the sample.
