I've noticed (I'm sure I'm not the only one) that the best books are often unclassifiable, and this book is no exception. It's a love story, of course, and also dystopian post-apocalypse sci-fi, and also a southern pastoral. Above all, it's a coming-of-age story. Plus, dragons.
This book is just amazing. The world-building, the character building, the uses of language, the literary allusions, the way everything unfolds. I could not put it down and stayed up way too late finishing it, only to be sorry that it was over.

Except for the fact that this book is heavily gay in content (I am not gay), this book has a well executed plot. The author is extremely good at making word pictures of primitive rural life. If you do not mind reading about the gay life, I recommend it as a good read.
