Sorry if I spelt your name incorrectly but what you said was untrue and gave off the wrong impression of the book. I wonder what you were thinking when you wrote this interviewI loved the book and was deeply enveloped in the story, I think it is a good reference to the story it was based on.
I love the Anthropos books, but this one was quite different in tone and writing style, and just doesn't feel like a part of the series. That, plus the fact that the allegory is just WAY too blatant in this one. Sorry John, love your other stuff, but I'm not too sure what you were thinking with this one.
I thought that it was a great book. Throughout the whole book I was just totally enveloped in the plot. Also, I could kind of guess where the people were and what they were about to do better than in his other books. If you like C.S. Lewis, you'll love John White's "Quest for the King" or any of his other Archives of Anthropos series books.
