it was amazing

I've had to wait a couple of years to read this book because it was so difficult to get my hands on, but I totally loved it! I had no idea it was going to be in the format that it was, which I discovered is called an 'epistolary novel' and means "novel written as a series of documents". I've never read a book in this format and I really enjoyed it. I almost feel like I'm not sure I would have loved the book as much as I did if it had been written in a more standard fashion. The always-changing points of view kept this fresh and me eager to keep reading. Plus, I love all things legal so I was extra interested. I enjoyed the characters, and while the protagonist was not my favourite one, I still enjoyed her and was rooting for her. I like that the ending resolved some things and kept others open-ended.
I now really want to find another epistolary novel to find out whether I actually enjoy this format or it was just coincidence with this book.
