This book was surprisingly good. The best part about it was the fluidity and detachment of the writing style. It gave a strong sense of the dream-like state that the main character lived in, in which time was flexible and individual events insignificant. It was pensive, interesting, but unfortunately slow. Due to the nature of the protagonists’ world, very little change occurs in very long periods of time. For the most part, these were fast forwarded, but the plot was still discouragingly boring. I think that this would be more appealing to the older high-school age group, who (theoretically ) have a more developed patience.
