The first half of the book has the lovely feel of a dreamy fantasy. Of necessity, as reality returns it becomes more conventional, in feel if not in subject. Claudia's return to living is revealed not only through a revived hunger for sex but also by new desires for people whom she never would have thought of before as partners. Though well-written, I didn't enjoy those scenes as much, as I was in it for the Stranger, Paul; I did like that he continued to be woven in and out of those scenes. I liked Claudia and Paul enough that I would love seeing them in another book.
