Like many I found it slow in the beginning. I put it down and then picked it up again after a couple weeks, then read it straight through in one night. I totally accepted the story until about 2/3 through when I thought "wait a minute..." but I didn't see the end coming. If in fact it was really the end! I'm not a very "deep" reader - I need to be hit with a sledgehammer message before figuring out meaning in a book, so I'm sure most of the allegory went right over my head. But I did like it.
