This book's rating suffered greatly from being read right after The Sparrow, which is much better written. I think the only reason I finished it was that it's short. I liked the Narnia books despite being less than impressed with Lewis' writing. I found it really hard to get past his writing in this one. The characters were caricatures and were entirely too one-dimensional. I suppose this one was a great allegory for something. I'm still unclear what that was, though. Unfortunately, I bought the other two in the trilogy at the same time I bought this so I guess I'll try the second one and see if it's better.
