Not as trippy as some of Ryman's other writing: more of a metaphor for how people deal with change.

Wow.

If someone had described this book to me I would never have guessed I would have liked it so much.

It was one of those books that flows, and you don't notice the passage of time while you read it.

Such an engaging story.

I highly recommend.
