Beautiful, Poignant and Unforgettable
on 26 September 2013
For someone to write so beautifully about pain, both physical and emotional, is quite something. I'm therefore astonished at the lack of reviews for this wonderful little book. It can be read in around 1.5 hours but is worth so much more than the asking price; there is much wisdom contained in its pages.
I don't read love stories as a rule but I'm so glad I read this and will certainly read it again, sooner rather than later. It's a dark and brooding tale but the prose is simply sumptuous and I found everything about the story and characters entirely believable. People and places formed effortlessly, and I was moved to tears by the protagonist's plight. I haven't admired or been inspired by a character as much for a while.
Put simply, I can't fault this book at all.
