"That afternoon, they felt no astonishment at any of it. Perhaps a butterfly, too, is unimpressed by its transformation from those wormlike beginnings. Why shouldn't it crawl out from the darkness, spread its tiny wings, and fly off into the windy mystery of the trees? The grub lies quietly in its soft cocoon, silent, thinking. It knows everything."
I would give this book a 3. It is a beautifully written and interesting because of the writing. Although I did find it interesting, I had no problem putting it down and walking away. It held my attention but did not grab at it. I think that not grabbing at my attention worked well with the writing style and was neither a good thing nor a bad thing. It was good but not amazing. It was like a bite of an apple. The apple is juicy and full of flavor which tastes really sweet. Once the bite is over there is no pull to take another but that is only because the first was sastisfying. Like the cover the bite was a simple glimpse of a larger whole.
