While it's fast-paced and action-packed, it was hard not to finish this without feeling slightly cheated, on both the predictability and farfetchedness
of it all.
Casting JonBenet's deliberate and even-handed intermingling of fact, fiction and even farfetchedness
successfully renders these divisions arbitrary and, as such, conspicuously disregards the possibility of an untrammelled, objective truth.
Even with serious dedications the pieces have such a crafty American grin, tinged with the folksy farfetchedness
as DIY contraptions, that they constitute curious (indecisive?) way-stations to the classic fluorescent-lamp bars of colour-light disposed directly on the wall as bold and direct 'industrial' devices.
"Crace does well configuring Leonard's rabbit state, Francine's tormented urgency and Lucy's appealing teenage farfetchedness
. But he is unable to provide a convincing story for them to move through; it is thinly and hastily contrived." RICHARD EDER
