A friend lent this to me through the Nook Lending system, and I was pleasantly surprised. I had not expected to enjoy it, because I tend toward these genres:

1. Dystopian YA
2. Historical Fiction
3. Suburban Fantasy
4. Classic Literature
5. Historical non-fiction
6. Biographies

To my surprise and delight, however, I really enjoyed this book. The author had a dreamlike, atmospheric voice that really caught me. When I put it down, it was with great regret -- I just wanted more. The pacing, the character development, the depth -- everything about this book was just amazing. After finishing it, my mind was just awhirl with philosophical and moral conundrums.
