For the first third of Without a Name the book I thought it was really indulgently written lots of semi lyrical writing, but it did not make much sense Towards the middle I realised there was a story there, but not much of one, and it was padded with too much weird description. The repetition and jumping around became really annoying and hard to keep up with Same problem in both books Depressing and no sense of hope or positive thought, just war and rape. The five stars are really for Under the Tongue, which is wrenching, poetic, dream like, simply extraordinary. It is difficult to describe Under the Tongue I had to study it and it took a while for me to understand it When I felt I had understood it I read it again and it wrenched my heart There is something very authentic and very real about how Vera uses language to make unspeakable experiences and emotions real.
