I've always loved NK's writing style since she burst onto the scene a few years ago. It's addictive, it's hard to put down and above all else it is a tale that is full of wonderful twists and turns. Add to this some solid characters, wonderful world building and of course a pace that really makes this a tale to savour.
Whilst perhaps not as fast paced or inventive as the original the authors writing style is what makes this tale work its way deep into the readers mind and keeps it there. Its almost as if NK has found either a magical spell to enthral or perhaps a way to create a word drug that just keeps you hooked. All in it's a magical read and definitely an author that's firmly on my TBR list for quite a few years to come. Great stuff.
