Feedback by Robison Wells, narrated by Michael Goldstrom (Variant, #2): Can you finish a book, love it, and not understand what it was the point of the book... that's kind of how I feel about this one. It's odd. Did I like it - yes. Would I read it again - yes. Why - I don't know. What was it about, I don't... I don't know. Yep. It's like that.
