Wow, this book was something else. I'm not sure what I think about it, except that it was quite good and well written. The plot was refreshingly different from the books I usually read. The characters were interesting, and the story was beautiful and a bit tragic. To be honest I'm a bit speechless, and I'm not sure what to make of the book. I doubt I ever will. For me, the book was just different. I recommend it
