The desire for meaning that never gets fulfilled.
The action was tough to follow because the author repeatedly brings about new elements and seemingly arbitrary details, which makes coherence hard to obtain. The story was mystical but left me right where I began without trying to convey me of a resolved narrative. I felt as if I was the commuter on a train which traveled through a magical forest but never made a stop to let me out to explore. I got no affirmation of anything besides the fact that something is beyond my experience and the circumstances off-putting. The whole book could be summarized as finding meaning in the resolving of something which is behind the vail of our ordinary ignorance and disinterest.
