Where was the editor for this?! The last two hundred or so pages are like treacle.
No. Just...no. There is no writing pretty enough to make this meandering mess passable.

I repeat: read it.

This is unputdownable and the kind of story that just takes off and drags you with it. I loved the unreliable narrators, the ambiguous ending. All of it. It's boring to hear someone gush, so all I can tell you is that I ad
