A set of yarns regarding the lives of a few key people in the Dream Archipelago. Similar to here, but not quite.Mainly an interesting attempt to look at a world with as many fresh starts as there are islands. Some stay where they are, some travel when they can. Even mapping all the islands is infeasaible; they don't even have consistent names. Because of the inconsistencies in people's narratives, there is a central mystery to unravel.The pages turn quickly as we follow one character or another and how they live within the complex island system. There is a fair amount of humour, but some depth is missing in order to keep the book light.
