" 3.5. Pros: Likable main characters, almost poetic writing. Cons: Blink seemed younger than he was supposed to be, which made the love story seem a little off; the mystery was a bit of a letdown in its predictability, but I didn't find that to be an important part of the story despite the fact that it drove the action. Other thoughts: I appreciate that Wynne-Jones tried something different by using second person for Blink's sections, but it didn't quite work for me. I had hoped initially that once I got used to it the narration would give me more of a connection with what the character was actually thinking rather than what he might want to share through first-person narration, if that makes any sense. Unfortunately, I found that I never fully got used to the use of second person (though it got better once his story merged with Caution's), so any greater intimacy from the narration was lost in requiring slightly greater effort to process an atypical style. But overall this was a relatively minor issue, and I'm glad I gave it a try. "
