After mulling over Come, Thou Tortoise for hours, this is the best summation I have managed to come up with: this is why we read. A great intellect walks you through this story but never lords it over you, instead, you get to enjoy the cleverness the ride is made of. The characters that make their home in Grant’s novel are the kind of wonderful people who wrap around your heart and never let go. Rather, they gently squeeze from time to time to let you know they’re still there.
I'm the type of reader who loves to gobble up the tales they love as fast as possible; I found myself slowing down and savouring every page with this one. I’m still stunned by the perfection of this book.(
