The very last page of my copy of ISLAND gives a bit of info about the author. One line states “his later work reflects an interest in mysticism and the effect of the consciousness-expanding drugs.” That single sentence goes a long way to explain ISLAND.Yeah, it was *that* bad. If you want to find out why you can read the rest of my review here.
Boy did I ever hate this book.
A commenter on my blog wanted to know why I continued to read it if I didn't like it so much. Well, I was CONVINCED that there must be some redeeming quality, some fascinating tidbit, that would make it all worthwhile. Yeah, not so much.
