“Sabaka! I can’t believe I didn’t see it before. Detective Miller, you are in love with Julie Mao.”
[Day 2027] “CROWN JEWEL WEBS”
Three out of five stars.
Plot: vague and largely unimportant. The plot is as simple as it sounds on the cover - enemies to lovers through letters. Nothing more. The interesting part of it was seeing how the letters and relationship developed from adversarial to curious to friendly to in love.
Characters: less characters and more ideas of characters. I’ll be honest I mixed up Red and Blue’s personalities all the time. They seemed more devices to hold the love story and relationship between them and less characters of their own. I don’t know what they like or who gets angry easier or how they speak when it isn’t in letters or how they look - although I’m pretty sure characters in this download/infect themselves into different bodies so maybe that doesn’t matter so much.
Setting: this kind of disappointed me. It’s just - the prose is so beautiful and the description so lush. Imagine how much better it could be if it was a focus for a second and we got some actual rules and explanations instead of vague prettiness. I Would Like to know more about different time streams and the different worlds and situations or even more about how Garden and the Agency work because they are such fantastic concepts that El-Mohtar and Gladstone glossed right past on their way to write another pretty paragraph. Please, tell me more about the different versions of Atlantis or 33rd-century Accra or what exactly decanting is because all these fantastic concepts are touched on and then forgotten! It’s like… they describe keeping letters in their bones or behind their left eye? Red actually has a hollowed out place behind her eye where she can store things? So does that mean that when they describe letters behind their teeth and in their fingertips the letters are actually stored there? I am confused and would like some rules to this world please!
Prose: holy prose, Batman. It’s just… so pretty! When Blue describes her life with her husband, when Red talks about Mitchison’s book (a real book that sounds very interesting, by the way), their declarations of love towards the second half, brutal and beautiful and filling me up with a feeling that I don’t even know how to describe. Maybe it’s the global pandemic and the loneliness it brings talking, but something about a love story happening between people who can’t meet felt particularly cathartic to read at the moment. Between pages 142 and 143, and again 162 and 165, there are love letters I read four times before I could continue with the rest of the book. On page 118, Blue speaks of a harvest and a peaceful time I longed to experience for myself. On page 66, Red is in a seafaring version of Quechua civilization I’d love to read a book set inside. Every single goddamn page has a gem of a sentence or description I’d like to go back and read later. I want to read this book aloud
Bad things: please, give me a character, a rule about how time travel or societies work, a cold hard fact that isn’t hidden under prose. It’s so pretty, it really is, but there’s so much of it and it’s so purple it can mask the story.
