I'm rating this what I think my 12 years old me would have, because adult me has issues.
What was touched upon that I loved:
- How structured education can grind on an, as Calvin calls it, uneven child.
- That moment of realization where we find out that parents are not omnipotent, and the subsequent time were we resent them for not living up to that expectation.
- Being equals and being the same are two different things.
- Siblings love.
Talking generally, I really liked the descriptions. Very vivid.
My adult hang-up: More or less the same as with Narnia, though thankfully not as egregious. The religious undertones I could well have done without (hell, the three Mrs. could well be placeholders for the holy trinity, one not being corporeal, one good at communicating, one coming as quotes). I'd demote half a star for that today.
