This book kept me reading. I wasn't a big fan of the storytelling style. It was told from the perspective of several different characters and each time you switched characters, the story would essentially "start over" based on their experience. While each one's story was certainly interesting, I was getting really impatient to find out what happens. The ending was kind of lame and seemed more like an easy way of ending the story, as opposed to making it interesting.
Hamby's poetry is accessible, while not pedantic. She offers huge mouthful stanzas packed with images and musical language.
