This is such a confusing book, if you try and follow the plot exactly. Never mind what happens or doesn't happen, reading The Waves is like being underwater and glimpsing large shapes moving in the murky depths, and seeing wobbly shapes in the sky up through the water, and surfacing for brief moments in brilliant sunshine with salt spray splashing you in the eyes and a glittering city spread out in the near distance, before you're plunged bracingly into an icy pool or quietly re-embraced by the warm bath whence you came. Sometimes you're floating limply among fronds of seaweed with tropical fishies nibbling at your extremities, and sometimes there's a roar in your ears as you swim laps with bubbles streaming from your nose. It's a constantly changing experience, but there's a general sense of not seeing quite clearly but not really caring. I used to give people this book for birthdays and what-have-you, which may have been obnoxious.
A great read, intertwined lives of interesting people...for once I could deal with multiple characters! I felt lost at times although its not that complicated but I looked forward to reading this book every night before bed. It proves that the search can be more meaningful than the answer. I must say though that the end was disappointing and seemed lazy compared to the rest of the book.
