really liked it

This is a beautifully written book, but not in a way that is distracting from the interesting and imaginative plot. It's the kind of writing that you barely even notice (a good thing, to my mind). The characters, though not exactly real, were full - reading it is right in between a myth and a Virginia Woolf novel, which is basically perfect. It's funny where it means to be with suspense in all the right places. In fact, the only reason I can't give it five stars is pretty stupid: there's an almost maddening repetition of "stentorian" and "antediluvian" - which are more noticeable to me because I didn't know them before I read the book. So people who already know those words will have no roadblocks to complete adoration.
