The place looked like a still, stagnant pool in which some enormous force had blocked the natural flow.

This hint isn't very subtle. The lack of subtly is almost alarming, and right away I knew this was an important place.

"Maybe when people take their eyes off them, inanimate objects become even more inanimate."

Now, that is a statement that takes some work to get your mind around. I am still not convinced I understand it in context.

It makes me think a lot of "Nausea" by Jean-Paul Sartre. The idea that the world is more about perception than it is about reality. I would agree with that to a large extent, though not quite so far as existentialists take it.

I don't pick up on all these hints, these metaphoric passages. I do notice the water though - a lot of water running through these chapters.
