    Splinter review ´ 3 To me it didn’t seem like the author of this book really thought out the book before he wrote it Most of the time he wouldn’t really write than five pages before one of the characters would think of something that didn’t relate at all to the plot It made it very hard to remember what was going on in the book if I picked it up later especially if I had set the book down without marking my page In my opinion Splinter

I m definitely the target audience for this book exceedingly clever and imaginative thinking combined with the author s trademark gorgeous prose His cleverness is sometimes stultifying as it can be too much at once But his sensitivity to his characters and their emotional plight always tempers the cleverness Case in point SPLINTER features two major flashbacks both of which appear thematically relevant than narratively relevant In the first the protagonist remembers thinking nothing is original and then becoming irritated because he isn t even the first to come up with that idea Secondly the emotional climax of the novel reveals in flashback a bike collision between the protagonist and a girl he was crushing on Written like Will Self than Roberts this final flashback ties together many of the themes of the novel collision separation maturity by violent and destructive means It ends with no answers how I like em and offers a gentle suggestion that perhaps the protagonist has finally or will finally reach adulthood
