Like Lot's wife, who paused, turned, and dared look upon the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, Booth could see the sleeping city from which he fled, and knew it would awaken soon and hear of the destruction he had wrought.

I think he does a great job explaining how the boy character he is very detailed with him. His mysteries are definitely not fulling explained, like Silas Bod’s guardian, we have no clue what he is just a mystical creature. The Independent states “This brief, dark, savoury adventure deserves to become a modern classic of children’s writing: it has more mystery, excitement and wisdom in a single chapter than all the soap-operatic dilemmas, empty acrobatics and moral dogmatism in those thousands of pages of Potter franchise.” I think that this editorial review does a good job describing the book in
