Book 2 in this 3 part series sees the frivolity and adventure give way to cold, human madness as the place you find yourself in starts blocking you in and refuses to let you ignore it. Consequently, the lead character must choose how he fits into the bigger picture by deciding how he wants to paint himself, and starts to see himself painted by a hand he thought he was in control of but begins to no longer recognize or keep track of. All the while, the element of fun and sharpness that effortlessly runs through each Alexander book is picked up by the emerging second story character and her place in the bigger picture. Act 1 always loads the keg, act 2 always lights it. If you liked book 1 then you owe it to yourself for both responsibility's sake, and enjoyment, to read book 2. ****
