Quite enjoyed the allegory and thought experiment. Keeping to reread in different circumstances.

i almost put this down on the first page, when i got to the line "the clouds that had gathered near and made of themselves rain all through the night were now intent on going elsewhere." "made of themselves rain"? i was sitting outside and wanted to read, though, and i didn't have another book on me, so i kept at it. there's a lot of pretentious phrasing in here, which kept kicking me out of the story. too many moments of saying "ugh!" out loud. but it wasn't completely horrible, because i got sucked into it a bit. but then it just seemed like the "hero" just wandered around stupidly, letting things happen to him. by part-way through i just wanted it to end. and then, at the end, i wanted to go back to a time before that annoying ending.

This is definitely my favorite book of the year so far. I doubt anything will be able to top it.
