Read in January, 2009

This book really deserved all the praise that sparked my initial interest. It's a good story. It's well-, if over-, written. I'm sure that it's full of deep meaning and symbology and bears up well upon repeated readings.

However, all the verbage - while unique, exquisitely correct, and often beautiful - serves to obfuscate the story rather than elucidate it. The story also seems a bit thin and is not particularly compelling.

I'm glad I read this book, but it's not one that I'll likely find myself returning to, via either rereading or rumination.
