I found TWK heavy handed in it's symbolism and an attempt to recapture  
the heavily stylized prose of BOTNS without the organic nature of  
Severian's voice. Maybe Abel really is dumb and illiterate, but it was  
sometimes difficult to follow the narrative because Abel is a bad  
storyteller. I think the story would've been better told in the Whorl
