At first I was not sure what to make of David Frauenfelder s Skater in a Strange Land I was attracted by the slightly zany description US ice hockey player takes job in an island that is only sometimes accessible by air or sea and in between times is off somewhere in another dimension But then sober moments took over and I started to wonder at my purchase decision I know nothing at all about ice hockey except that like all sports it uses a uniue and arcane vocabulary I wasn t very sure how the business with the phase shifting would work out And the inhabitants of said land Borschland seemed a bizarre mix of American sportsmen who spoke like Europeans largely Dutch I think a church that seemed reminiscent of the Amish and a whole bunch of talking animals Could I copeThe story took a little while to warm up as the main character was introduced to all of these different facets of Borschland And there were a couple of kindle formatting slips early on which threw me slightly for example parts of sentences were accidentally omitted as early as the third chapter though things improved through the book Also like several other books I have reviewed recently kindle

American has about two thirds of the voice and two Borschlanders share the rest between them These voices are clear distinctive and well defined and in any case I really like books where you get to see events from different points of viewSuddenly I suppose about 13 of the way through I was seized by the tale and could not disengage myself until the end Even the plot is a little hard to describe though as it blends sport romance and politics with the familiar sense of a stranger trying to acclimatise themselves to a new language and culture Happily you don t need to know the slightest thing about ice hockey to enjoy it I simply accepted the occasional bits of sporting jargon the way I used to tackle euations in maths text books in my youth just substitute a mental suiggle and think to

Hitch hiker s Guide to the Galaxy is a bit too far out for serious readers of science fiction And you do need to give it time to get under your skin I heard recently that one reader makes a decision about a book after five pages and prides themselves on this as a skill If you did that with this book then you might well miss out on a treat Personally I don t think I can uite give it five stars as
