Why is it so traumatic, I have just been through the toughest year of my life trying to deal with the death of my Love and my father and there have been many times when I thought that being dead myself would surely be better than trying to deal with the death of two people that were a significant part of my life and all the misery that went with it. What I want to know is, what is the point of grief, why is it so awful to the point that you feel your own life is not worth living, why is the experience so shocking and what do we really gain from it. I know I am not the same person and that everything is different now, I don't view that as a bad thing really but what it took me to get to the other side of this is something I find hard to deal with and I wonder what your thoughts are on grief? Can we ignore it and just get on with our lives because some people seem able to do that, whereas I couldn't carry on, I couldn't even function at all for months and months. Maybe that's a tough journey

Probably one of the best fantasy novels I've ever read-picture Alice in Wonderland mixed with Pokemon and Harry Potter. It's over 800 pages and carries a few darker themes, but I read it as a sixth grader and again as an eighth grader- both times were enjoyable. The writing style is simplistic, though, so this would be a great summer read for when you have a lot of time and don't feel like reading anything horribly challenging.
This is one of my favourite books ever, and i hope that other people can enjoy it like I did :D

the beginning was really slow, but the end was amazing! It wasn't rushed like it is is most books, and overall very memorable.

this story is very good, well written indeed. the storyline can be a bit dark in some areas, and I
wouldn’t recommend it for people who are underage. the story also has talk about demons, so if
you do not like that stuff, then I do not recommend it for you. however, the storyline and moral
of the story is amazing and will definitely give you something to think about, and that you can
use the moral in real life. this story is overall amazing, the experiences, the dangers, the balance
of good and evil in this book, the characters you meet, and especially the imagination put into
this. Defiantly five stars. A good read indeed.

Miyabe's style in translation is a bit plain, but her grasp of the emotional tensions in a family coming apart and a traumatized boy trying find a way out via an epic fantasy quest is sure. I surprised myself by choking up repeatedly through the last 40 pages, something that never happened to me with Harry Potter.
