‘Dead Water’ by Simon Ings

‘Too Obscure For Me’
Score: 2/5

Simon Ings

I suspect there’s a nice plot in here somewhere but I’ve no idea what it is.

I spent most of the time reading this book a little unsure what was going on. Now that I’ve finished it, I’m still not sure. I’m not sure what to make of some elements of the story – why were they there, and what were they supposed to add?

The whole thing felt too obscure to me. It’s possible it’s one of those literary masterpieces I just don’t get. It’s possible (even likely) that some bits of it are supposed to represent something or other and I just don’t see it.
