it was amazing
bookshelves: 5-star

There is nothing bad to say about this book. NOTHING. It is perfect.

My only fault with the series is the remarkable cover art - and yes, I know the author usually has no control - the covers are beautiful, they are lyrical, they are descriptive, they are ominous. Lovely, appropriate, perfect. But Eugenides has the wrong skin color. Can't we at least get that much right? There are so few mainstream books with a non-white protagonist!
Hello, thoughtless racism. It's nice to see you again.
