At times, I felt the author spent too much time poetically describing the setting. But regardless, it is good writing. It just doesn't flow the way a reader likes. Another interesting aspect of the writing was that the author will interrupt the characters to describe their micro expressions or how others were responding a quote. It was sometimes helpful in observing the stage, but it was also annoying at times.
I wish this book delved deeper into the concept of birthing civility and cooperation. I was almost expecting the lead characters to create a superstition out the "beast" and use fear as a tool to control the other kids. I figured there would have been more commentary on the dark potential of the human soul. But nope, here it is: darkness, sadness and violence. The end.
He was my favorite. Be represented higher intelligence and sensibility.
