really liked it
bookshelves: historical-fiction, classics, read-in-2012
Read from February 08 to 19, 2012

Well, that was a very interesting experience.

This book isn’t perfect. For one I had to switch off my 21st century brain a lot to not burst out laughing or be annoyed at the wrong time. At certain points there was so much draaaama, I had to keep myself from rolling my eyes, or just giving up on the book entirely. It is a very long read and bits of it were just plain boring. And what is with all the exclamation marks?!

However, somehow it still works. Somehow I still kept reading and even enjoying myself. Somehow I was riveted and just had to know what came next and how it all would end. Even though it didn’t end how I thought it should, I really liked it.
