In order for genre writing to be great it does not have to have all of the qualities which make a book literature rather than a novel. For example, Twilight can still be enjoyed by English majors dispute the fact that it is so poorly written.
For a novel to be both a great piece of literature and genre fiction is rare. According to my Junior High English teacher even Isaac Asimov did not make that jump, although Ray Bradbury did.
My point being, this book is an amazing piece of literature. It has great prose, an engaging storyline, and characters worth reading about. It is also an amazing genre fiction. The plot and world are unlike anything else out on the market. This could easily become one of my top ten favorite novels and should make it to the must-read list of every list made after it's date of release.
