An interesting idea (although I figured out the (literal) big twist very early on), but I think the author was a bit confused about what sort of book he was trying to write. Was it supposed to be an adventure? political allegory? philosophical musing? coming of age story? He tried to throw all of those elements in, and they didn't always sit well together - especially towards the end, which felt like he still had a lot of unused ideas he didn't want to abandon, but the book was already getting long, so everything just got hurriedly crammed in wherever he could vaguely fit it, and the story trails off into an unsatisfying lack-of-ending, when the natural conclusion had already happened a long way back.
Not a terrible book (and there were sections that had me eagerly turning the pages), but definitely doesn't live up to its potential.
