Nafiza Being an English Literature major means that I do a lot of reading so it's not too difficult to read fifty.

I did too. It was so absorbing and so detailed. The ending was a bit unfinished and then I realized that it's part of a trilogy. Jasper Fforde is so original.

Donna | 1350 comments I loved that the end was so dark and sad. No last minute heroics.
Now what does that say about me.....

message 13: by Nafiza (new)
