I see WtWTA has been getting mixed reviews. Clearly, people are responding to it in different ways. Me, I liked it; it was emotionally intense.

I can see why some people don't like it; the Wild Things' problems don't get resolved (not before Max leaves, anyway), and a lot of the story is pretty depressing. But it does stay true to the theme of the book. And it does it by being an intense exploration of personality conflicts.
