The Somnambulist by Jonathan Barnes


The Somnambulist, Jonathan Barnes

Read this at the request of my Mom who thought it was quite disturbing.  Compared to the kind of stuff I usually read I found it rather dull.  Mom said there were parts that gave her nightmares.  (Guess I won’t lend her Queen of Blood or The Ruins – she’d freak after the first few pages) Sadly, I couldn’t really get into the story… what there was of one.  I also thought the narrator turning out to be one of the main characters was a poor literary device, at least in this case.  This is the authors first novel and I won’t be reading his second.
