Get mad at me if you want, but I just could not finish this book. I may return to it at some point, but I highly doubt it. Every time I went to open this book I was seriously annoyed. There is no story, no plot, and the characters are as flat as a pancake. 2 stars for gorgeous writing and imagery, but pretty writing does not necessarily make a good book. I am honestly shocked this is rated as one of the best books of the year. I just don't get it. Not at all.
