Okiefamily ,

Good read, very sad.

Read it in a day. Liked it alot.

MacKroppa ,

Breathtaking.

The most amazing book I have read to date, it's beautiful and strange, mysterious and smart. A modern day Catcher in the Rye. I couldn't put it down. I have a hard copy at home and a copy on my iPad, I pick it up again and again.

Incredible!

This is one of the most imaginative, emotional, and well-developed novels I have ever read.

This is the kind of the book that makes you nervous to read at first: it's unconventional, it's intricate, and it's not a casual read. But once you find yourself within the story, it engulfs you and is terribly difficult to set down. It's an incredible work of art.
