Book Review: The Somnambulist by Jonathan Barnes

This was a weird book not only because of the opening was confusing but because the book hit the right marks and had the right moments and yet it felt wrong. I wanted to like the book and care for the characters but I couldn’t. Maybe it was because I have seen and read the same stories before or it was that the book felt thin and unreal.

I’m not sure how to explain this feeling of mine as I wrote that the book had the right story, characters, happenings, and nothing at all. The Somnambulist isn’t a terrible book, and it isn’t badly written, but I want amazement and wonder and not just boxes being ticked off. It had a great opening which drew me in that is all I can say.

Thank you for reading!
