It's been a while since I've read a book best described as 'mythical fiction', so I thought I'd take a gander back into the realm I would consider Tolkien-esque. The Seed is full of wonderful imagery and description, but I had a difficult time connecting with the book and it's characters. I began very intrigued and liked the initial quick-pace of the novel, but as it went on I knew I was missing some connection to the characters and the symbolism. I think if this is a genre you enjoy and are able to sit and read the book in one sitting (or fairly close to it), then you will probably connect with this book more than I was able. But as a mom of 6, who gets interrupted while reading or had a few days in between readings, I had a trickier time (part of this is due to the main characters names changing throughout the novel--which I completely understood, but made it harder for me to see them in a more personal way). I'm still glad I read this and tried something different! It just wasn't for me.
