I don't know what to think about this book.

Baker was clearly a very good writer, and it shows in this book. But half the time this volume reminded me of nothing so much as a bunch of kids sitting around in a basement playing Dungeons and Dragons - badly. She introduces us to a primitive culture that has everything we do except electricity. The dialog used in many situations could have been from a poorly written children's book.

The only thing that saves it is the ending. Not what happens, but what we learn about the narrator. There are reasons why he would tell the story the way he did. But the preceding 30 or so chapters are so annoying, getting to that point is difficult.
