This is a story based in the future where there is an incredible amount of high technology, there are dolls that can walk and talk and think for themselves! I think that once you have got your head around this book you begin to understand it: however it takes a while to figure out what is going on, I found it quite difficult to understand what was literal and what was a metaphor, for example when it talks about the trains speaking it took me until part III to realize that the trains literally spoke, I thought it meant they felt like the trains spoke to them. There are a lot of characters introduced throughout chapters and sometimes when the author goes back to talking about old characters you have forgotten who they are. The story is very complex and goes off on different branches however the parts help to separate it. Over all I think this is a good book but quite hard to understand.
