Read in January, 1992

This is one of my favorite stories...based on the adventures of a young boy to save his mother, he journeys through multiple dimensions in a desparate race. I'm a huge fan of "other world" stories and those with strong character development--this has both. It's a traditional hero story, but just packed with life challenges, fear, and tragedy. While I'm not usually a fan of "horror" genres, the ending sequence is so disturbing and gripping that I had to put the book down a couple of times and then immediately pick it up again because I was so engaged. The relationship between Jack and Wolf is equally gripping and disturbing. The book showcases socialogical evil through imaginative action and how choice and circumstance determine our outcome.
