When I started reading this book, I was just like “Why haven’t I read this before, when I was younger?”. Later, I’ve thanked my usual way of procrastinating because I just realized that this book can reach its full potential when it’s read by adults. It’s not only a fantasy story for young readers, but a complicated and fascinating novel about human nature, desires, love and aims. The first part of the book focuses on the importance of names, because truth hides in the possibility of giving things their real name, while lies work the other way round. Instead, the second part is dedicated to the real meaning and power of desires. In the end, the last part tells us about our relationship with nature, both intended in the biological and pshycological senses.
This book is so amazing to be read and so important to be “studied” that it probably is one of the main masterpieces of our time. It has to be read twice: when you’re young, in order to amuse yourself, and when you’re a grown-up, in order to understand it.
