really liked it

This novel is one of the most beautifully written pieces I have encountered. Although the actual plot of the story is relatively slow, and the climax itself is a bit nebulous, the details and imagery are vivid, eloquent, and so precise that the writing almost feels fragile with authenticity. If you read closely enough, every event is easy to understand, but if you just graze over the page you will most likely need to re-read it. All of the details are phenomenal; Sonya Hartnett really has a way with delicate sentence structure, relatable metaphors, and just imagery in general. I also loved how the book is told in two different points-of-view (both the protagonist's and the antagonist's); the difference in voice is distinct and really keeps the reader interested. Great book!
