it was amazing
bookshelves: fiction, 2016challenge

Deliciously compelling. I enjoyed this novel tremendously; sad to see it end but happy that there are three others in the series still to be savoured. There's something unpretentious or refreshingly powerful in the simplicity of the style (or maybe it's just that the seams aren't visible). This book was first published in 2011, but for some reason it feels like it's been around for much longer. I'm certain it will endure. Strongly recommended.
