really liked it
bookshelves: owned, must-read-in-2012
Read from July 07 to November 20, 2012

I would recommend this book to others but with the 'but' that the story is very long and it will cost a lot of energy to read it. But it's worth it. Although I am happy that I've finished the book and will probably not reread it for a very long time. Still, a good book but know what you're going into.
