it was amazing

This has become one of my all time favorite books. I love the magic of having a secret place to protect old books. I loved all the intrique of linking the past to the present through one such book. I'm not the biggest lover of mysteries, I am of suspense though. There was a twist around every corner in this book. A mixture of fantasy and reality and the distinction is so very fine lined. When you think you know a character - you find out, you know nothing. I had the hardest time putting the book down until I got to the last few chapters - and only prolonged them because I did not want the adventure to end. The characters were complex and alluring, even the evil ones were unforgetable and fasinating. Can't say enough - it's a must read.
