I would have given a 5 for the writing but had to take 1 away for the publishers choice of the tiniest print they could find. I had to buy stronger reading glasses so I could read it. I still ordered Branches and will get Shapes too.

Did he really write this many unreadable books? And I actually bought them all based on the first book I read, which was totally excellent? And did I attempt to read them all?

Yes, yes, and yes.

Wuff.
