A very unusual book. I really enjoyed it and caught myself thinking about it at odd times during the day and wishing I could go home and read some more. The story centered around Silver, a young orphan who was apprenticed to the lighthouse keeper. But then the story mainly talked about Babel Dark, the son of the man who built the lighthouse. In the end you can see how fate and stories of the lighthouse keeper, Silver, and Babel were all intertwined.
