Please read this book. It's a beautiful example of a well-crafted story. It has a few weaknesses, as do all books, but I am so enchanted by the story as a whole that the weaknesses are easily ignored. Perhaps the most beautiful aspect of this book is that it unfolds in its own way. This is not a book where predictable next steps happen. It's a book where people mess up and have to fix their mess and make a bigger mess that has to be fixed. It's a book that doesn't read like another video game.
I'm sorry I'm not writing a better review that analyses the thing. I don't want to tear it apart and look at it under a microscope. I want to sit in the quiet afterglow and just enjoy that I invited this book into my mind.
