It is one of those books that have to be read simply because the story is damn good. The plot is brilliant and the narrative style has helped in carrying it to success. The characters are well built and play their roles brilliantly and as you progress through the book you can see how there is no wastage of character of the storyline.
Everything complemented each other in this book; the plot, the characters, the style of narration, the title, the cover image. What I didn’t like was the fact that the moments of flashbacks experienced by the characters were lost in narration; if they had been italicised, it would have been easier as a reader to get more involved with the book.
My opinion: Pretty damn good book tonrecommend further. Definitely interesting!
My rating: 4 out of 5
