The book is written very well. The narrative part is shockingly beauty, deep, profound, and I appreciated it for descriptions, intensity of places and situations.
It's a very quick reading thanks to the frequent dialogues.
I admit that this mix of narration and dialogues is fluid and the reader will finish the book in a very brief time.
I thank NetGalley and St.Martin's Press for the ebook.
