An enjoyable read. A really good story. My only critique is it was overly wordy (yes, I made that wordy up) in that the author wrote as if he was telling the story to 5 graders so it was slow, methodical and sometimes repetative as if he really wanted it understood. But once I accepted and adjusted to this quirk, I could read around or through it and still totally enjoy the book. So on the Dale Scale Im going to go 4 stars and yes, I would/will read this author again.

5 star story with 3 star execution. Lots of head hopping and omniscient narrator (which isn't necessarily bad, but needs some getting used to), and lots of indirect speech. The story is told more than shown and sometimes the repetitions slow down the action. I have very mixed feelings about this, I admit it! I liked the story, but those huge blocks of text made it for a slow read... do I want more? Maybe. Yeah, I guess I want to know what's next. But I'm not in a rush.
