really liked it
Read in April, 2012

Loved this one. Lyrical, poetic, and intense. Starts off a little slow and vague, but wrapped me into the story about a third of the way in, and then I couldn't wait to get back to it. A passage I liked which sums up the essence of the story: "But the dream every single one of us had, and the one that broke our hearts, was not about death or destruction or anything momentous. It was this: a normal day, no new world, no new rules, just an unremarkable day. Nothing floated down the river. We drank some tea with our bread. Birds were singing, but we did not notice. Time was a river we were carried upon and neither the spring nor the mouth was visible. We had no reason to appreciate every single second of the day - we had no reason to do anything but sit and breathe. In that dream, the world did not require us to turn it."
