I loved this book; I found the description of place and interweaving characters a delight, and the central relationship between Ida and Midas utterly convincing, and very touching. I really liked the turning into glass motif – strange and yet satisfying, as was the admittedly tragic ending. The only part of the book that needed a heave-ho – in my opinion – were the miniature flying bulls, which I found ridiculous. I know that turning into glass is not the every day, but the bulls were an irritating step to far!
