really liked it

Hmmm... where do begin? This was a story that was a little unusual, and sometimes a bit extraordinary .... and once I had finished it, my mind kept coming back to it. I kept turning things over and over again in my head --- the main character, the story, some of the supporting characters, the setting. Either way, it all adds up to a fascinating read.

The author's writing style is descriptive, enough so that you can almost imagine where you are, how things taste, how things feel. I think that's a rare thing -- to feel as if you are experiencing the story first-hand, not just through the main character. Is everything completely believable and realistic? I don't think so, but it didn't spoil the story for me. If at times, things felt like they were entwined in a peyote dream, that was okay with me.
