Fascinating and absorbing. I was left with a very sad, bittersweet feeling at the end - yet it was still satisfying because yeah, that's real life. The writing is beautiful and draws you in (an accomplishment for a first-person narrative), and the details are well-researched enough to feel real. Enough twists and turns and chillbump-raising moments for a mystery addict, though maybe not for a suspense novel. I can't wait to read the next one!
