Well, I know I'm in the minority with my review, but I really didn't like the book that much. I read it in 2 days. I felt that I needed to hurry to the end to see how many of the tragedies could be put to right in the end. The author is very effective at painting vivid pictures, but so many of them were heart-wrenching... I couldn't wait to finish reading this book.
Currently 5/5 Stars.
