I had to sit and give this book a good thinking-over after I finished it. What the hell is it even about? I decided the main theme of this book is acceptance. But that leaves out the whole concept-as-physical-construct plot element.

The fact that this book deeply puzzled and confused me lead me to say that I really liked it. I was afraid at the beginning that it was going to be one of those books about a man disappearing up his own ass, but it develops into somthing else quite special.

It loses a star for that whole Manic Pixie Dream Girl trope.
