it was amazing
bookshelves: first-reads, top-ten
Read in November, 2008

Wow, what a read. An author's debut book that goes straight into my top ten reads is pretty special. The early descriptions of a car crash and fire will have you driving extra safely for weeks, the descriptions of treatment and suffering in a hospital burns unit will leave you wary of ignition sources for a similar time. There is a friendship, unexplained at first, but when explained is inexplicable. What is going on? The narrator is as puzzled as yourself, fantastical explanations are revealed piece by piece until they seem commonplace. Finally an ending that brings it all together in a way that you just don't want it to. An epic read, not from the length of the book but the depth of the characters feelings and the most amazing storytelling. Couldn't put it down, want to read it again.
