I had a better sense of who Lirael was as a character, and liked her better once she had worked through the Clayr stuff. But this book felt seriously bloated to me. Long passages of journey where not much happens, either plot or personality wise. One of the things I loved about Sabriel was how spare it felt–not a word wasted, so that was a big disappointment. But it was nice to have everything wrapped up, and I may have shed a tear or two.
