Read in January, 2002

I read this book a couple of times when I was younger. The first time I was fascinated, the second time I actually got bored and put it down, and the third time I decided I could be a devotee for life. I've heard it's really different than the movie. It's also not what you might expect for a children's fantasy novel; it is weird in the traditional sense, eerie and a little spooky and with a thousand stories that never get resolved. It builds in a lot of mythology and a lot of surreal wanderings, and it's both densely detailed and superbly crafted overall.
