I was intrigued by the description, so I bought the book. I am sorry to say I found it disappointing. The book is definitely not thought provoking and the romance left me tepid, at best. At several points I contemplated just not finishing it. Primarily, I wish the character development would have been more complex.
OK, it is true that this book starts slowly. Give yourself one hour to get fully hooked. I once tried to listen to this book before and put it down too quickly.The storytelling is charming, enchanting and endearing. It plays with the interface between fiction and reality and powerfully shows the strength of the human spirit. There is a HUGE twist at the very end that will cause you to immediately want to listen to the whole book again. This book is truly a masterpeice. It is, without a doubt, one of the finest books I have ever listened to. Enjoy.
This book was a real "page turner". I honestly had trouble turning my audible player off. The narration was excellent; haunting and pensive, sad and gripping. Great storytelling. Definately recommended.
