I read the entirety of this book in about 20 minutes — not even, and I absolutely loved it. The imagery is extremely stimulating. I recommend this book to anyone and everyone with a few extra minutes on their hand.
This is a great read for all who like reading beyond (or in depth rather) the text. Everything in this story can be symbolize an abstract thought. If one were asked to summarize this story, one would be able to provide multiple different timelines; all distinct from one another.
