- Has anyone read Prospero's Children by Jan Siegel? I started it, got to about
page 20 or so, and found a bad taste in my mouth. For those who have read it,
is it worth continuing?
Basically, I found her writing style a bit too pretentious. It was as if I was
reading an author who was purposefully trying to be 'artsy' and showing it
off. That is, the prose was /waaaay/ too purple, so much so that I couldn't
stick around until enough plot developed to keep me there.

"Communication has changed so rapidly in the past 20 years, it's almost
impossible to predict what might occur even in the next decade. E-mail
which now sends data hurtling across vast distances at the speed of light,
has replaced primitive forms of communication such as smoke signals, which
sent data hurtling across vast distances at the speed of light."
