Carnal: Somewhere Over 40 Winks - Rom LcO'Feer Definitely novel and puzzling. At times too obscure and in dire need of editing. I both liked and disliked this book. By 70% of the way through, I just wanted it to end. During the last 10% or so, the pieces were put in place, and were very cool. The prose is sometimes torturous, and sometimes brilliant. A truly mixed bag of a book, so I give it three stars but can't recommend it because of the uneven writing.
