Little, Big

OK, lets get back to books, shall we?

I've begun reading John Crowley's Little, Big. I'm always searching for superb fantasy literature, something to set beside the great fantasy classics (George Macdonald, J. R. R. Tolkien, etc.). And maybe this is one of them. Too early to tell (I'm only on page 70), but it's beautiful. I used Google Blogsearch to find out what others have had to say:

Unlikely Words says "Magical, melancholy, wistful, and beautiful."

Cat Politics
says, "Little, Big is a sublime, almost perfect novel...."

Not Free SF Reader says, "absolutely not my thing."

And Dreamwreck said, "the worst possible thing you could do is write Little, Big. unfortunately, that’s what Mr. Crowley did."

Hmmm, I guess I'm going to have to keep reading.
