really liked it
Read in April, 2012

What a strange, intoxicating book! Super fast, completely overwhelming read. I started it and didn't put it down until I finished 2 hours later. Definitely not for the light of heart, as it touches on some taboos some may be uncomfortable with (including homosexuality and beastiality). I felt they added interesting sparks to the story, without seeming artificial or over the top.

I loved the writing and the layout of the story- switching viewpoints every page or two made it even more interesting and really drew me into each character in a different way. The twists and turns of the story weren't entirely surprising, but kept me reading none the less. As a Finnish girl myself, I love seeing the references. Very well done, until a mildly disappointing ending.
