liked it

I had read reviews about how "life-changing" this book was, but it was pretty underwhelming. It was good, with a very interesting allegory, but perhaps I didn't find it as remarkable as others because I felt like the lessons were already a part of my current moral code so it didn't feel new or enlightening. It reminded me a lot of "The Little Prince" where there is a traveler who learns life lessons through sometimes supernatural experiences. Nice, but not spectacular.
