it was ok

I didn't get a whole lot out of this book. I suppose it is fun to take the monster and make him the most thoughtful, profound character in the story, but I don't think there was much else going on in this book other than that little idea. Perhaps that is why the book is so short. Maybe I would have gotten more out of this if I was just a little more intimately familiar with the source material.
