The Ferryman is a special book. It starts slow and without letting you know much about the slightly off nature of where the story takes place. Only after the first half of the book it slowly gets rolling and then, suddenly, there are layers upon layers of meaning and genre-shifts.

My main issue with this book is that some of the core concepts were mentioned on a "trust me, bro" basis and didn't make any sense to me. I'm not one who needs their SciFi novels to be incredibly logical or who isn't able to overlook a couple of plot holes but some of these were a bit too big for my taste.
