Perfect or too perfect?
The cheery beginning overflows with incredibly visual, lush, sensual descriptions. As it goes on, this perfect hotel starts to ride the line between perfect and too perfect. First it's a little disquieting but then it returns to almost perfect. Once the tension starts, it ebbs and flows but never stops gnawing at you.
Although a lot of time is spent immersing you in the environment, the characters and their relationship have just enough personality to keep this from being a scenescape.
The narration is also immersive. In addition to drawing you into this rich setting, the narrator wonderfully captures the characters emotions, particularly the wife's, and the various tone shifts which are so important.
I've now read 5 short stories by this author, narrator pair and I really like their quality. I'm looking forward to hearing more from them in the future.
This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
