I started a blog here on goodreads which hardly had any visibility or interest so I removed it.

This is a beautiful book, well-written and yes, as every person has noted, ORIGINAL. If I describe the book, I’ll unwittingly give away what makes it original so this review will be very short. Just read SUKI and then you’ll understand.
