I didn't get this novella. Flowery prose I tended to skim past, a past which is the center of the book which is never gone into... I was disoriented by how the scenes change so quickly, when I didn't get the point of the one we're moving on to the next. None of them connected for me. Most of all, the characters' emotions were flat and unfounded. I wish I could give this at least two stars, since the writing is decent (although Anastasia this, Anastasia that reminded me of "advanced" roleplayers, who's work is always rather horrifying), but I'm sorry, no deal.
