    "Firstly, I thought the writing was brilliant, concise, eloquent with a lot of linguistic colour. The story was unique, intriguing and thought provoking and it kept me interested throughout. The possible hidden meanings within were also quite fun to try and decipher. I felt half way through that the whole thing was a metaphor for climate change!?
