I think i read over half of The Night Ocean before i stopped. It's a fascinating venture into story telling, but the narrative depressed me. I don't need that so i stopped. I hope you enjoy it!

I have not found the novel 'The Night Ocean' depressing, but I have wondered what is the point of the novel? The novel just seems to wander without going anywhere. peace
