This book is thick. I was tempted to put off reading it based solely on its length. I'm glad I didn't. Once you begin reading, the length is not an issue--it didn't feel at all as long as it looks. The story truly does have that "classic" feeling: it's unusual, riveting, and completely enjoyable. Despite being the first book in a planned trilogy, it could easily stand alone and still feel satisfying. It's full of wicked coyotes, wise birds, quirky people, and lots and lots of conflict. For me, one of the coolest things about this story is that Colin Meloy made a magical, Impassable Wilderness in the middle of Portland BELIEVABLE. How cool is that?

Yeah yeah yeah! I've been looking forward to this book so much, but also kind of nervous about it. Now I'm excited again! (Thanks to your review.)
