Review: This book was pretty entertaining. It had a fairly good plot, although the way things played out in someparts was kind of weird. It was definitely written for a younger audience than most things that I read and it took me a little while to get used to the simpler style. I didn't enjoy this book as much as other things that I have read by him, but it was a good read overall. My favorite part was probably the hall of mirrors, it was interesting way to question the way people perceive themsleves. The book was full of little messages about life and things like that and that was my favorite thing about it. Without that it would have just been a cool story and I don't think I would have enjoyed it as much.
I didn't really have a deep connection with any of the characters. I din't particurally like or dislike any of them I just felt like I was hearing the story after it happened rather than experiencing it with the characters. I would recommend this book to a younger audience and maybe even older readers who wouldn't be bothered by the things I mentioned. Although, I had problems with it I was still entertained and excited to find out where the story was headed. I have read many other works by Shusterman and intend to read even more.
