it was ok
bookshelves: fantasy
Read in November, 2008

I agree with some other reviewers that the metaphor was very heavy, in my opinion just this side of overpowering.

I liked the characters, but the characterization of some of them could have been better. In particular, I don't understand the conclusion, and the motivations of a pivotal character are a mystery.

I enjoyed the journey, but the destination was unsatisfactory.
