The Land Across (2013)
language
English
3.44 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Better than average "late period" Gene Wolfe. The Kafka meets Dracula premise is intriguing but the book as a whole doesn't entirely hang together. Unlike some other late Wolfe, the plot does broadly make sense. The afterward implies there may be some sort of political allegor...

review 1: A little strange. Part mystery, part horror story, and part political. The fictional country depicted was interesting with interesting characters speaking a broken English that was effective. The story was a little drawn out in places so the reading was a little slow. The author ...

review 1: Fun, fun, fun!! Imagine you are a parolee moving to a random town and finding a big abandoned house with some squatters. You have no money and decide to squat yourself. You start taking care of the place, because you are a nice guy (maybe) and think you can make an arrangement wi...

review 1: A friend of mine recommended Gene Wolfe, so I randomly grabbed this novel from the library. I'm glad I did, because I've spent the last week immersed in an imaginative blend of crime noir, sci-fi, and Lovecraftian fantasy. This book is a wild ride, and I can say without reservati...
