really liked it
Read in October, 2008

I liked this book. I didn't love it, but I really liked it. At first I felt like the Hamlet structure was too transparent, but I like how it played out in the end. The language was vivid and the story was strong. I didn't think the characterization was as strong as it could have been but there were definite strong points. Overall, I'd say this is a strong literary work but it wasn't powerful, earth-shattering, mind-stretching, life-altering. In short, it wasn't "The Power of One" and coming so soon after, perhaps unfairly paled in comparison.
