really liked it
bookshelves: 2013, pageturners
Read from February 24 to March 04, 2013

It took a little while for me to become invested, but then the book became all-consuming and I read the last 3/4 in a weekend. I was a bit frustrated with the overly complex plot and the way that the back story is revealed out of order, in bits and pieces. That said, it is very readable, and I loved the characters and the shadowy noir feel. Much of the language and imagery is quite beautiful, especially the idea that “Books are mirrors: you only see in them what you already have inside you.”
