This was better than I expected. A lot of people told me 'it's so pointles, the character didn't grow or change with anything'. Yeah, well Winnie-the-Pooh never grows or changes or anything and you still like him. So what if nothing changed? I felt like the book was more about the main character reaveling himself to the reader, not about him going on a journey (most books have some sort of 'journey', not literal (most of the time)). The character didn't have to change himself- he seems to have come to terms with himself over time- sort of. Anyway, I loved the book; it had a lot of emotion.
