Well, umm... This book was weird. Interesting, sorta boring and very, very weird. I'm not quite sure what I've just read, only that I didn't really like it all that much.

I really enjoyed this novel. Its a fantasy novel and its very immersive - its quite evocative of a young boys childhood. I'd imagine most people could relate to aspects of the plot, while the fantasy element is very imaginative and I found it a very engrossing read. I can find it difficult to maintain interest in fantasy novels, if their not at least partially based on earth and they seem too complicated but I found this easy to follow and a very compelling read.
