A very subjective review, overall the book is great
on 4 August 2017
I had to read this book as a part of my university reading list. I consider myself a fast reader and eager book lover, but for the first 100 pages I just couldn't get into it. No doubt, the book is well written, the language is exquisite, but the story was not happening. After that it picked up the pace, I got interested in the events, however, subjectively, not my favorite book, I wouldn't have picked it up if it wasn't out of a necessity and I am definitely not reading it again. However, I have written down a couple of passages from the book, in some parts it really resonated with me, it was deep and reflecting, but I just couldn't bring myself to symphatize with the characters. Even thought hey have been through a lot, and there are all grounds for developing affection, it didn't happen for me. I felt like an observer, I "saw" the story unfold, I followed the characters, but I will not be carrying them with me after turning the last page.
