This book broke me. I fell for the characters as they wormed their way slowly in my heart. They crept up on me, and it wasn't until I got close to the end that I realized just how much.
It's not a perfect book. There were parts, especially around the page 50-100 mark where I found it a bit dry and boring. But that might be a personal thing. I lack an attention span these days.
This book is all about the characters. And they shine.
Though the writing is remarkable. Vivid, well-researched, and full of emotion.
Not sure if I will write a full review for this one or not yet, but I did want to get some words out there.
I am glad I finally had the pleasure of reading this book. Now I understand what all the fuss was about.
