This was kind of a weird read for me. Pleasant, seriously interesting premise (low-brow scientist ends up discovering a turtle that keeps people alive for hundreds of years past their natural expiration date). It’s a little mysterious and long-winded. It took me a while to get through because there’s just… a lot. The writing is clear and detailed.
What really got me was the ending. Man, the ending. I felt as though I’d been strung along for the sake of it.
Read it if you’re in a pseudo-sciencey mood and feel like taking a dive into a fake “undiscovered” land. I definitely did when I picked it up.
