Awesome. I'll add the review later.

Okay, this book was fantastic. What beautiful writing. So many turns through madness you kind of find yourself going mad, too. It totally had the feel of Phantom of the Opera, which I loved.
This was a page turner for me. I found myself completely compelled to keep reading until the end.
It was very emotional, dark, distressing, and very poetic in the delivery.
For a book having only one major character--and only one with any character development; this book could have gone very badly---but it was polished! I am very happy to have read it. The only complaint I have is that I would have liked to know what caused the madness in the first place--but it was not necessary to make this book one of my favourite reads.
