really liked it
bookshelves: thought-provoking, fiction
Read in May, 2008 , read count: 1

It questions whether what we know is real, and makes you realize there's no way to know for sure.

The Prince goes back and forth from insightful and wounded to harsh and unforgiving. His anguish over his uncertainty leads him to many drastic actions (the poor servant).

Can we really control fate? Is the only way to control it to give in to it?

Beautifully written.
