Not quite three stars, but not really two either.
I think the writing was ok, although I got a little lost in places with present verses past narratives and it was overall a little inconsistent. Some sentences stood out as beautiful, some as really clumsy.
At first I didn't like it because the ending was given away at the very beginning, so I spent more time trying to get to the "when" and "how" instead of examining the "who" and "why." (This was my problem with "The Book Thief" too, I didn't see any point in finishing when the author spoiled the ending right in the middle). However, I think the author wrapped things up nicely here and gave me some things to think about. By the end of the book I forgave the early spoiler and decided I liked it.
