It stimulates your mind and through the often bazar characters helped me revisit just how far away the human race is from being civilized and possessing qualities of love, acceptance, charity without "strings", and non-judgement for those who are or who do things different then "Our Way".
Albert Einstine once said, "ImaginTion is more important than knowledge" and this book would help anyone get a real handhold on what real imagination looks like, feels like, and tastes like.
I was afraid that Matt Ruff wasn't going to land his plane (err, kite) very well at the end because of the incredibly wild ride that we'd been on so far, but even there he pleasantly surprised me.
I highly recommend this book. Good characters, good scenery, inventive story (from sprites to evil ice birds to groups of animals having philosophical discussions to true love) -- all with a well-paced writing style and light-hearted sense of humor.
"Set This House in Order", also by Ruff, is one of the most beautiful stories I have ever read. I love that book and pass it along often to anyone who expresses an interest. Having enjoyed "STHIO" so much, I searched Amazon to find another good novel by this wonderful author. Unfortunately, this book is just mediocre.
