I am still not sure what I think of this book. The descriptions were absolutely lovely and there were some really good parts, but I also found myself quite bored and hoping the book would end soon. It was a letdown, as I had planned to love the book. I don't know who the audience is for this one. Many kids will probably be turned off by the condescending narrator often talking about how "children are..." as in "children are heartless." Um thanks, but I don't think that is terribly endearing. Anyway, I am sure some will adore the book. I did not, although I quite liked certain parts, and I rather enjoyed the last few chapters.
