    I like the way that you really express your feelings in the review and I know the feeling when sometimes even though the plot might leave you feeling frustrated you still like the book for the way it tugs at your heart strings.

    This sounds like a fascinating book! I love a book that makes you feel emotion.

    The novel itself sounds really interesting and something I would enjoy, but knowing that there are so many branches off into different characters and then a different story completely would definitely throw me while reading, but I may give it a try anyways. Thanks for the honest review!

      Definitely! It was very enjoyable, just not simple.

    I would love to take a class with such an in-depth focus on one writer! Sounds fascinating! Excellent review, as you detailed what did and didn’t work for you without using any spoilers. Great job!

      It was so great, because I turned out to really love his writing! I think it could’ve ended up rather not good if I turned out not to like him much.

    I really like how you expressed your frustration with this book, and how that changed as the story fully formed in your mind!
    I haven’t read any of his books yet, but perhaps I will later, like your nice rating system tells me 😀

      Definitely read his books! Some are more interesting than others. My favourite so far is In the Skin of a Lion.

    P.S. can I add how much I like your one-click captcha? That is fantastic!! I hate typing the words so much.

      Thanks! It malfunctions once in a while, but usually is really great. 🙂

    I love books that linger with you! and agree that it means they were great books, even if it leaves you unsettled in some way. But I don’t think I can handle this book right now, but I’ll keep it in mind for when my reading mood is as fidgety, lol
