Just...Okay.

I liked the detailed, evocative descriptions of The Used World Emporium. I could catch the vibe of the various rooms full of furniture, books and oddments, now warehoused like inmates at a senior center. I could imagine their former glory and prestige as they decorated the human world.

However, I thought the actual characters in the story lacked
luster and definition, and I found some parts of the story to be
quite sad, an impression not helped by the deep, low pitch of the narrator's voice. On the other hand, there were some unusual pairings, which added to the book's appeal.

So, on balance, although I almost stopped reading this novel several times, I did manage to follow its twists and turns and enjoyed the experience.

Too much description

Is there anything you would change about this book?

YES - I love an author who can give good description....enough for you to get the picture. This author gives so much description on things that have little to do with the story, but doesn't go into description for more things that DO pertain. Many wasted words.
