it was amazing

I really enjoyed this book. I felt sucked into the world created by Ms Butler and so identified with the Dana character. She was just an ordinary lady with a "just-enough" life, who was sucked into this epic whirlwind. It was amazing how deftly the characters are made three dimensional. They were not just lovable, despicable, or pitiful, but all three and sometimes more. I read some review where a person commented on the uselessness of giving Tess, a character without lines, a name and even elaborating on her story. I, totally, got it because in somebody's life I am Tess.
Anyway, I savored the book like a fine meal and I was whole heartedly satified.
