really liked it
bookshelves: science-fiction
Read in September, 2008

I thought this book was very interesting, but I felt that the plot didn't move, yea, even become apparent until midway through the book. Set in two time periods, both storylines were quite interesting with wonderful descriptions and happenings, but there really didn't feel like there was an over-arching storyline until quite near the end, and that felt like a bit of a stretch. My great like for the writing style and the turn of phrase overcomes my dislike for stories without structure and gives this book a good rating.
