Stations of the Tide


Very original, but parts are very strange and incomprehensible. I would rate those portions "D-". On the other hand, some portions are very good, and highly memorable - worthy of a "B+++" rating.

I gave this novel 2 1/2 stars because I rated it "B -" when I read it.

In my rating system, a C - gets one star, and I increase by a half-star with each step up to an A+, which gets 5 stars. One half star is reserved for bombs... D+ and lower.
