Read in February, 2011

The story took a long time, especially the first third. It also ended so abruptly for all of it's taking forever to build.
The pacing was hard for me - but probably in a good way. Her sentences, and even chapters, range from super brief to super long, so you can't speed read. Which might have been intentional!

A lovely sad little tale. Felt like it could be made into a very compelling movie as well.
