"Tenth Wave is full of puns. You can read the image as though you're looking at a low- hanging meteor between two light Cliffs, or you can read it as a huge waterspout, or as the front of a wave, very close to you. Those spaces reverse themselves. The edge of the water is at the top, and the sides can be cliffs or air. Everything is unexpected." (Source: The Art of Everything, Robert Conway, 2007)
