Orkney ~ Amy Sackville


Felt like I was chewing the same thing over and over
Lyrical but lacking

The setting was superb.  The concept was poetic.  The execution was repetitively shallow, repetitive monochrome, repetitively boring.  There were some evocative descriptive passages but of the same things - maybe to back up the theme of infatuation and obsession?

I can see how it was meant to be mystically etherial but the daydream-like quality became too much waffle.  Instead of poignantly compelling, it lacked intensity, dulled by the lack of plot and lack of character development.
