      barely 2 and a half stars i have liked some of Di Filippo s work, but this really wasn t very good i always read Thomas the Rhymer fantasy when i come across it, but this one was a bad example of Di Filippo s tendency to throw everything indiscriminately into the pot, including in this case Dante, John Bunyan, Candide, and faerie, and expecting the resultant stew to prosper it doesn t the allegories don t work, the time conceit doesn t work, the characters are wooden, and the whole thing isn t a [...]
