From the very beginning you begin to wonder exactly how the Minotaur (named M in the story) can possibly exist with Human beings. After being in the Labyrinth for five thousand years, the Minotaur finds himself working at Grub's Steakhouse. The book is full of characters that come to life. The Minotaur finds conflict within himself due to his half man, half animal instinct. What got me hooked on the story was the fact that the author (Steven Sherrill) displays loneliness and the need of human interactivity very well. The story also shows how Love is a very important part of humanity, yet the Minotaur only hopes to find it one day. The hope that someone will see passed his difference and love him for who he is. A dream we all wish and hope for throughout life. I couldn't help but relate to this story! That's why I gave it such a high rating. I couldn't put it down, once I read the first chapter, I wanted to go on wondering what happened next. If we were to have a Minotaur among us now, people would react the way they did in the story. Everyone has a Minotaur within them, we all want to be accepted and loved for who we are.
