Lo que más recuerdo de este libro es que lloré mucho cuando terminó, y cada vez que lo pensaba durante los próximos días, lloraba nuevamente. Ni siquiera recuerdo por qué, y me temo que cuando lo vuelva a leer no sentiré lo mismo.

Wow, okay, um... what? Yeah, I just finished this book and it was all right to say the least but it was also really confusing. If you're a reader of comic books this may be a book you'll enjoy because it really had a comic book feel to it. Now that I think of it this book would have been so much better and easier to understand if it were a graphic novel. This book was Flowers in the Attic meets Danielle Steel/Hustler meets Lord of the Rings meets Matrix. For real. If you can't even wrap your head around that concept you probably will explode trying to read the book. It's probably also not the most appropriate to read as a bedtime story to your kids. I was reading from an advanced reader edition so I'm going to comment on typos, spelling and grammar errors, but those were the only major flaw I found in the writing of the book. Witcover seems to have a very firm grasp of the English language, using it beautifully throughout the novel. Though sometimes it appeared he was showing off how mamy Scrabble-winning words he knew. One of the biggest problems was that practically the whole novel was exposition. Most of it explaining the world of Kestrel and the mutes. Even then some of the explanations were so confusing it wouldn't even help to read it over again. There never really seemed to be any story, and when there was it was overshadowed by different things being told in order for the story to make sense. Another major problem I had was that the two seperate stories being told didn't appear to have any solid connection between the two, at least none that seemed reasonable. And by the end of Jack's story I was lost. If you've read this book and are looking to me to try and explain why Jack did what he did in the end, you're looking at the wrong person. Overall the book only had the writing going for it. The characters, the story, most everything else about the book just wasn't that great. There's a bunch of other things I could criticize about the book, but why beat a dead horse. Let me just reiterate that I think this would make a really good comic book series, the drawings would help make things a lot clearer.
