Read from May 19 to 20, 2012

What a great read! The prose is simply beautiful, the plot is engaging and carefully-crafted, and the story drew me to immerse in its universe.
I was a tad disappointed when I learnt that the story was inspired by the author's own life, hence a semi memoir, because how fantastic it would have been to invent such a plot. But then again life itself is a master plotter.
