really liked it
Read in November, 2011

On the whole I loved this novel. It is well-paced, it has beautiful imagery, the characters are convincing, and I didn’t want to put it down. However, perhaps I missed something because I felt not everything in the story was resolved. Was Sadie a ghost? Is that why the London medium was there? What was the significance of the London medium? Was there anything sexual in the relationship between Quinn and Sadie? They were certainly sleeping toggether a lot and she was teetering on the verge of adolescence, so this is a perfectly natural question for the reader to ask. These issues and questions didn’t ever seem resolved.
