“Captivating philosophical tale in which everything happens in slow motion, as in a dream. Endowed with a powerful imagination“
NO MAJOR SPOILERS
You know when you post a letter? Do you really know what happens to it? Do you just trust that it reaches it’s destination unmolested and unopened? Let’s be honest, from you, across the distance, to it’s final address, your letter could have been seen by many prying eyes.
The Peculiar Life Of A Lonely Postman is a weird one. It, as the title suggests, is about a lonely postman who enhances his life through the words of others. Two people in particular. On the face of it this seems like a fairly innocent, although morally wrong, pastime. But things take a dark turn. Very dark and twisted. Bilodo, our protagonist, delves deeper and deeper into a strange world of his own creating, and all through the book you just have the forboding sense that this will all end badly. You swing from feeling sorry for him, to being horrified at his actions, and most emotions in-between.
