This one just wasn't for me. It was too fanciful, wordy, and just plain weird for my taste. I read this for Life's Library Book Club and not likely one I would pick up on my own.

I converted my reading experience to audiobook about half way through to see if it would help bring me into the more positively popular perspective about this book, but I just couldn't get into it. I don't want to discourage anyone from reading it though as other people would probably relate to it more than me and might find themselves better immersed in the story.
