Hi @philippaeast, I’m half-way through ‘Ice’ and yes, there are some similarities in how hallucinatory passages flow in and out of the reality.
What did you think of it?
I’m thinking it’s the result of a troubled mind. And the style – sentence fragments, arbitrary punctuation, vagueness – isn’t for me, tbh. Interesting that in my kindle version the text: “In a peculiar way, the unreality of the outer world appeared to be an extension of my own disturbed state of mind.” (p.67) is actually underlined, as if the publisher wanted to make a point.
Still, it’s a good starting point to explore other comparative novels.
Haha – yes, you’re probably right – better not challenge agents, or try to stimulate them.
