Readers looking for a book that will transport them to a world of reality and fantasy may just want to try this one. I wasn’t sure what to expect, and I guess I am still not entirely sure what this was all about. I may have to re-read it in order to fully understand what the author was trying to portray.
The parts I enjoyed the most about this book were the quirky characters and events that they experienced. I could tell from the subtle ways the author wrote about these characters that they had a lot more going on than met the eye. At times, parts of this book that were obviously fantasy seemed very believable. Although I hadn’t really heard any buzz about this book before I read it, I think this book will be much loved by habitual fantasy readers and those who are open to trying new genres.
This book might be one of those that people either love or hate, but since I don’t really have a clear opinion of it yet, I guess I can’t make that statement without being a hypocrite. You never know how different people will interpret something.
