Winter’s Tale by Mark Helprin

I rarely read fantasy, but the writing in this novel is wonderful. I was incredulous to how Helprin could make dense descriptions flow so beautifully. The underlying philosophies and thoughts that surface are beautiful too. However, I did find that it took too long for all of the disparate characters and stories to tie together.
