Intricate and vivid ... very well written, Splinter is not only a page-turner, but itīs also a veritable meditation on how one can choose to cope with a situation (any situation) or simply remain apart, but never entirely aside of it. Itīs an elegant twist of the old Eldridge Cleaver saying 'You're either part of the solution or you're part of the problem'. Hector is torn apart for not knowing even if there is a problem in the first place - but he chooses not to discover the truth. And thatīs his undoing.
Post-Weird Thoughts is Fábio Fernandes, and his blog is an excellent one.
