Incredible book in a number of ways.

From the first paragraph you will notice that the language sets this apart from most writing in the genre.

In addition, the premise and development of the story are so imaginative--this book is often categorized as science fiction, but that label is both too limiting and not quite on the mark. If it is science fiction, it is much more Ray Bradbury than Isaac Asimov--the imaginative explorations are all on the human side of the equation, rather than the technological.

When you read this (and you really should), do yourself a favor and don't read anything about it--including the synopsis from the book jacket. You just can't tell someone exactly what this book is about without giving away the most powerful part of the reading experience.
