    A Wonderfully Classic Feeling Book

    It's amazing, but this modern book feels like a 19th century-written classic. I love it! It has the philosophical feel connoisseurs of classic literature love, but unlike some classics isn't hard to get through and is not so long as to take you months (which is a plus. ;) ). Some parts were a little slow going for me, but those are few and for the most part it's a real page-turner. The characters are fascinating even down to those with only a single appearance, though I do wish we could have gotten deeper into the more main characters' minds; known them more personally. I found some things on the technical side of the writing repetitive, but besides that one of my favorite aspects about this was the style, with appropriate metaphors and thought-provoking philosophical material everywhere. It did bug me a little how similar some facets of the story were to The Count of Monte Cristo. But for the ending---have your tissues on hand. Then be ready to go in a corner and have deep thoughts for a while. It's so good.

    Rich and beautiful

    This is a beautiful book with strong classical elements in both plot and style, yet undeniably its own story. Plot is great, characters excellent. The story is deep in a way I miss in a lot of modern literature, but no less fast-paced or engaging for it. I cried over it, and it’s a rare book that can make me do that. It fully earns all five of the stars I give it. Read it. You won’t regret it.
