I like the cover of the book, but it looks more sad than beautiful.

I found the book's opening a little disorienting as I waited for more information about Signe to be revealed. I could relate to her statement about aging and feeling like the same person inside.

Once i got my bearings with Signe, the narrative timeline and point of view shifted to David. And for a time, I was lost again. I think the author wants us to feel this confusion. David's journey with Lou reminds me of Cormac McCarthy's THE ROAD - dark, bleak, dirty. I was still trying to see how the two timelines were going to meet, and I think I would read on to find that out. However, I am not sure this is my kind of book.
