I must be missing something. I don't understand how so many people can like this book so much. I did not enjoy the writing style at all. There was a lot of repetition and rambling and trying very hard to describe things multiple times in unique ways. The world and the characters were hard to picture and I never felt wrapped up in the story. When I was done with the book, I was left thinking, "Did anything really happen?" It was an awful lot of talking and not a lot of action.I understand the moral of the story and can appreciate its importance, but I did not like the way the story was told.
