No, and I'll tell you why.  When I first read it it was a gorgeous
experience for me.  Every moment was like living in a beautiful buzz.
Later I thought of doing a close reading so I could see what was so good
about it, but I had a feeling it wouldn't survive one very well.  So I
rarely reread it, and then only when I'm in the mood to be carried away.
I agree that it seems to have a fantastic layer and a not so good layer,

For rereading, I'll take Giant Bones any day.  Did I mention here that
they're doing a live-action Last Unicorn?  With many of the same actors
as the animated one?
