really liked it

What I like about this book is that it unfolds with understated grace. It is dark, it is bleak, but a beautiful light shines through all of that. Human compassion breaks the barriers of a tyrannical world, ruled by warmongers and greed. The sheer power of giving a shit and trying to imagine the unimaginable saves the characters from a world consumed by vicious blackness and despair. The atmosphere reminded me of Saint Exhupery's The Little Prince. The sweetness and the loneliness are palatable and the magic is inspiring. I was very moved by the ending. It was hopeful and truly inspired.
