    ASTONISHING BOOK ...OVER 600 PAGES...BEATIFULLY WRITTEN

    I am astonished that this book was free. I have read many of the free books, and the grammer, sentence structure, editing all leave a lot to be desired. That doesn't mean i didn't appreciate them, I just recognized that these books may have been first published attempts at writing. However, This book. WOW. The author should be making a ton of money and having this published by one fo the big publishing houses. Well-written,evocative of the period in which it written, and beautifully realized. I hope to see more from this author READ THIS BOOK!!!

    Sad

    Very deep and some what depressing. The main character suffers one bad thing after another. The ending left me wanting.

    A Good Read

    This book was not too bad. I thought it started a little slow but had a nice twist to it.

    Give this book a chance

    I admit that it was a little bit difficult to get into but then I couldn't put it down. The characters are well developed and inspiring. The story is well-developed, unique, and unpredictable.

    not so much

    The title caught my interest as did the description and reader reviews. I must have been reading a different book. Reminded me of "stream of consciousness" writing - just random thoughts tied together by several characters. No point at all.

    I really liked this book.

    It took a little while to get into this book, but I was really glad that I finished it. The characters were believable and it was easy to form a bond with them.
