Cool! Unusual!

I really enjoyed this because it kept you on your toes mapping the relationships, remembering who was who. There was virtually no narrative. It was a series of different stories, in different voices, in different formats, in different times. Characters featuring in one story may have had a fleeting role in another and may appear in another story in a different time. The stories are not chronological ... in fact, not anything-logical.
