Amazing read. Definitely lives up to the hype and it deserves the popularity it got

I liked the story a lot, but at times I felt the philosophical implications were a bit too complicated for me to grasp, a bit like the "The Matrix" scene with 'there is no spoon'. While Vivian Amberville's universe is as real as it can be (and not a computer simulation), at times it's a bit too complicated for the average reader. The whole philosophy of "thoughts become things" and "imagination drives reality" was spectacular but also hard to grasp sometimes. I may be only 15, but I felt that for a Young Adult book, it should have been watered down a bit.
Apart from that, Vivian Amberville is an amazing read. Definitely lives up to the hype and it deserves the popularity it got.
