I was given this book to read as an English Assignment. I think her writing style and descriptive form make the book what it is, reviting and suspensful.

<< The most poetic book I ever read. >>

Those are someone else's words, but I had to repeat them cause they are the truth.
A book that I'll definitely have in my home library and also wholeheartedly recomend for reading.

Challenging, fascinating, totally absorbing. On the all time favourites list. I can't wait to read it again.
