A quirky science fiction novel, or rather a philosophical novel disguised as science fiction. A man suddenly finds himself on another planet and meets a number of human-like creatures that all represent some idea or other. During the man's quest for answers most of these creatures die, until finally he too dies and becomes someone else. Unlike anything I've read before, certainly. I kind of enjoyed it though; it's weird, written in a clunky style and with a vague ending, but it's some intriguing food for thought.
