This book was not one that I wanted to finish and it certainly wasn't one that I wanted to put down. It was well written and I loved the format, the fact that it's narrated by death only made it more interesting. It was great to read a different take on death, as if it is capable of mixed emotions. The story drew me in and I became familiar with all the characters quite easily, getting lost into their city, emotions and thoughts. The pages seemed to turn themselves and I never once got bored of this book. It is well written, addictive, emotive and informative. It is simply perfect.
