I don't actually know if I like it or not. I know I don't hate it, but beyond that... There's a lot to it and while the overlying story's a bit pedestrian, there seem to be amazing undertones that I may not even have fully picked up on. It's one of those "bears thinking" books.I will say, though, that the epilogue was rather unnecessary. As in, completely unnecessary and made that aspect of that romance a bit more trite.
