A Man Came Out of a Door in the Mountain by Adrianne Harun

I wasn't able to successfully tie all the elements of this novel into a cohesive plot line. I liked the characters and the ending contained several surprises I didn't expect but there are key components that never conclude as well as characters who receive significant introduction but never appear again after that. An abstract novel with a number of fascinating characters, each with a story to tell, but a miss if you're looking for an engaging tale with a discernible introduction, climax, and conclusion. I left this book not really knowing what it's about, even after turning the last page.
