it was ok
bookshelves: fiction, magical-realism, identity, relationships
Read in January, 2008

The Bad: The writing is rather prosaic. Some of the relationships make no sense and seem to be there simply because the formula requires a love interest. It is predictable. The descriptions and metaphors are painful. It is underdeveloped overall.

The Good: I like the concept. I usually end up liking concepts for books and not liking the execution of those concepts. I found the garden interesting, especially the tree. I like that the magic of the family is common knowledge around town. That is all.
