Boekenvlinder asked:

Am I the only one who has difficulties plowing through this book? The story so far is good, but there's something about the writing that makes it difficult for me to get through it all. Might be the fact that I'm not a native English speaker, but still... I can't be the only one, right?

Mahnoor I'm not a native English speaker either but personally I found the book amazing. Maybe the German words confused you?
Julier I found the audio version excellent. I like to have the print version at hand to refer to it while listening to the audio version especially to clarify names and places. Highly recommend the audio version---I think I checked it out from my library.
