Helpful Score: 2
This book is beautifully written. This is my favorite of all her works. I've read this story so many times I have it more or less memorised, so am finally passing it on. The feast of all saints leaves you believing in these characters; loving some, hating others- in the way that only an amazingly written book can do. It gives a unique and in depth look into the society, with all it's ups and downs of this often historically and literaturally ignored special class of individuals that arose from and where caught between in a society where the color of your skin, facial features and texture of your hair meant all the difference in your lot in life. This novel protrays a very real and often gritty view of these charecters world and lives. It touches on all aspects of their social scene with completely believable charecters, none of who are perfect. Absolutely wonderful book.
