The dialogue is amazing! The author is very descriptive at times, her style reminds me of Stendhal. The book is one continuous stream there are no chapters to split up the book. This at times makes it difficult to continue since there is no end in sight when the story is dragging on. I found the ending most unexpected, and I was left wondering what happened to certain characters. Also I was left with the question was the main character better off at the end of the book? Did he really imagine the part in the middle or was it all real?
