Dark. Emotional. Moody. This book reminded me of the style that Romeo + Juliet (with Leonardo diCaprio) and Moulin Rouge were done in: kind of strange. It worked, though. The atmosphere that was only enhanced by the use of poetry definitely affected me as the reader. It was hard to put it down. I was drawn into Psyche's story and I wanted to know how it ended.
This book definitely doesn't dumb things down for young adults or teenagers. It's very mature in that it attacks things seriously. I liked the use of Greek myth and poetry and imagery instead of ordinary methods. It was very beautiful.
