really liked it
Read in August, 2011

Great language and characterization throughout. Would be a classic if the author had gone beyond the skeletal plot...but it picks up a bit in the second half. In parts it feels like a (much lesser) version of The Canterbury Tales...everyone reciting tales and monologues without interaction or development, but this isn't out of place given the fictional island context. [return][return]This was my first eBook for the nook...a great reading experience! Also can't beat the price (FREE!) at manybooks.net.
