This book is quite fanciful, but in a grown up way. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone under the age of a very intelligent mature thirteen. This book bounces around with time and space travel questioning humanity and happiness as a result. It is strange and wonderful, sort of like Willy Wonka’s candy factory. Though it can be hard to keep up with at times as I had myself on occasion to flip back through to try and clarify an idea or action that showed up seemingly out of nowhere. A sci-fi fantasy for sure that should be on anyone’s sci-fi/fantasy list.
