Sylvow -a tale of two reviews…

Posted: November 27, 2010 by douglasthompson in Reviews

We at Eibonvale have a wonderful object lesson to offer you today on how separate reviewers can see the same book quite differently, something Brendan likened (with Ultrameta) to blind men feeling up different bits of an elephant (an ancient Hindu allegorical fable about the ultimate unknowability of God, but that’s another story). Regina de Burca at The Future Fire takes a penetrating philosophical dip into it all:
Meanwhile Adam Groves at just rolls his sleeves up and enjoys the blood, semen and chlorophyl… run me a bath, someone.
Both reviewers seem to have really enjoyed the book, and felt inspired enough to talk at length about their reactions, for which we thank them heartily!
