A young woman with a seemingly bright future, a rich heir with no potential and an academic with superior mind but limited means.
The story is decently built up but it was left hanging in the end. No memorable characters and no haunting story lines. But the writing is simply beautiful Words seem to jump out of nowhere to capture you, and hold you, like these passages:
"The shift key had a habit of getting stuck, so that I would type a line all in capitals, as if the phrases were shouting back at me"
She is ripe in perception, yet appears to be robed in melancholy..."
"Why run ever again? He had no destination, there was no finish line. When he came to the end of the run he found only himself: the same, the same. The more he moved on, the more he arrived at himself"
It you ever like the play of words more than the story, then this book is right up your alley.
