Some books you read for the fast and suspenseful plot, some because of the side-splitting humor, then there are books like these where the beauty of the language makes you stop and savor every word. You want to read sections over and over because of the melody they create, the pictures they form, or the feelings they conjur. You want to read passages aloud so that you can roll the words along your tongue.
My only disappointment was the ending. I know this is the prequel to Skellig, but the ending left me flat. However, the journey to that ending was worth every word.
