If Only THE MAGICIAN’S ELEPHANT WERE as Interesting as the Title and Cover

Dear Reader,

I found THE MAGICIAN’S ELEPHANT dull. I understand it deals with loss experienced by almost all characters, but the loss became boring, heavier than the elephant, yet hollow. Maybe it’s because there are too many characters to cover in too few pages. Maybe it’s because philosophical concepts are dealt with almost in a childlike level, but without childlike wonder.
