I read this book more quickly than anything I have in (double-digit, possibly) months, got caught up in its story and wanted to wring everything I could out of it. It's excellent, and it reminded me how refreshing it is to become so fully immersed in a good book. It also finds much of it's power in the gradual reveal of information, so I won't say much more about it than that. Just that, as much as I liked it, I didn't love it--I wasn't emotionally captivated quite enough for that. One reason, I think, is because I saw the ending coming from quite early, though the journey was still a good one and my enjoyment of the book grew the further I read. The other, more important reason was I could never fully sympathize/empathize with the character and her complaints, given her big picture; this is actually addressed as part of her character growth, but it was still enough to keep me from being as drawn in as I would have liked--but I don't think that will be a barrier for many readers the way it was for me. This is well-deserving of all the attention, acclaim, and audience it is getting and I'll be adding to that with my own recommendations.
