The Map of Chaos
This is the third, and final volume of Palma's masterpiece. The first two were The Map of Time and The Map of the Sky. What a ride he takes a reader on! I will try not to spoil the surprises for anyone. H.G. Wells, Arthur Conan Doyle, Lewis Carroll, the Invisible Man, werewolves, time travel, parallel universes, and so much more! I was fascinated by the first two books, but, to be completely honest, found this latest effort to be a bit too much of a good thing. There was just too much going on, leaving me, at times, feeling confused and overwhelmed. At times I had to stop reading, as it was exhausting trying to keep up. I wish he could have shortened some of the scenes, especially in the middle of the book. The author does manage to pull everything together at the end, so I have to commend him for that. I am left wondering what kind of universe the author inhabits, that he could come up with such a intricate tale. I wholeheartedly look forward to reading Palma's next effort. (I received an advance copy of this book from NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review).
