I’ve read this book and I enjoyed it after I decided on how to approach it. My thoughts were sort of on the scope on how I think our minds work if we’re comotose or on the verge of death. What do we see and hear if we’re in a coma? How does time apply? How do we view the world? I think it would be similar to the dream-like state of Finnegan’s Wake. Using that approach, and keeping it in my mind as I read the story made it possible for me to take in the story without the complexities completely frying my brain. Perhaps reading a synopsis or two of the book could help, but I prefered the imagery of the coma. Probably sounds a little morbid, but it worked lol. Good Luck!
