How many more times must I buy this book?
I first read it years ago. It was one of the few books that grabbed me on the first page and actually managed to keep me 'grabbed' until the last.
I didn't see the surprise ending coming, and (at the risk of offending people cleverer than myself) I would kinda doubt the honestly of ANYONE who says they saw it coming.
If I had to make a list of my all time favorite books, this would be up in the top 5 or so. And for me it's stood the test of time, because I first read it nearly 10 years ago.
My friends all love it too, alas. It's the kind of book that you get excited about, and want to share. So I keep lending each new copy to friends. Unfortunately, THEY get excited, and share it too, forgetting that it was MINE!
But seriously, this is an excellent mystery with one of the biggest twists ever. I don't want to start telling you what it's about, and I strongly advise against reading any reviews that do. Just buy it, start reading, and let yourself be sucked in.
I wish I could give it more than 5 stars!
It's far from being your average suspense/literary thriller, with its mistery component taken to limits of content and form.
Highly recommended for people who love fiction in general, and are looking for an innovative literary experience.
