So I picked up this book expecting another of Pamela Dean's masterpieces seeing that I enjoyed the Secret Country series. Upon reading the first hundred pages I was lost and it continued to get worse. I have been familiarized with many classical author's works but the author uses the characters to show her superior knowledge of all literature. Not only does the book mostly contain nonsensical ramblings of poetic verses but the characters establish no real place in the heart of the readers and the story doesn't pick up until within one hundred pages of the books finish. In the end I was left completely unsatisfied and sorry that such a wonderful song could be so dreadfully portrayed. I am terribly sorry.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
