really liked it
bookshelves: fantasy, bildungsroman, steampunk
Recommended for: people with an open mind
Read in August, 2008

I sobbed for an hour the first time I read this one, but I have to say, on the second time through and with closer inspection of plot/ideas, the charm fades. I guess once the shock has faded, so does your reaction. I still appreciate it, though, flawed as it is. I especially liked the depiction of liars and storytellers, and the idea that telling stories, true or not, is something noble and right.
