Outstanding, an amazing novel!I first picked this novel off the shelf and bought it for an english project, and I am very glad I did. I love it. Paul Alexander is a very talented author. 'Rough Magic' looks like a long book, but once you begin reading you can not put it down. I love this book. It is a very good book that pays respect to Sylvia Plath's life. If I had the option of giving this book 15 stars, I would. I can not explain how much I love this book! IT'S AMAZING! STOP READING THIS REVIEW AND GO GET IT!!!!!!!!!
