Red Shift by Alan Garner

The much-loved classic, finally in ebook.
A disturbing exploration of the inevitability of life.
Under Orion’s stars, bluesilver visions torment Tom, Macey and Thomas as they struggle with age-old forces. Distanced from each other in time, and isolated from those they live among, they are yet inextricably bound together by the sacred power of the moon’s axe and each seek their own refuge at Mow Cop.
Can those they love so intensely keep them clinging to reality? Or is the future evermore destined to reflect the past?
From Goodreads.

I didn't like this book and I have to admit that one of the two Polar Bears given is just because it is Alan Garner. I like his other fantasy books but this book just makes no sense to me. I am usually good at keeping tab on a lot of different characters but here they kind of just blend and sometimes I had to go back as I hadn't discovered the shift between characters. If this was the only book I had ever read by Alan Garner I would read no more. I am glad I have read The Weirdstone Of Brisingamen which I really enjoyed.

This book qualifies for:
Goodreads 2013 Reading Challenge
Serious Readers 2013
