really liked it

Beautifully written in a fable-like style. While I enjoyed it all, the novel was most alive for me when the wild girl was in the scene. Holdstock does an amazing job of imagining what reality must've been like for a child without language who seemed to have survived in the wild on her own for a very long time. I'm am in awe of the author's talent.
