The writing was exceptional, using simplistic and minimalist language to create a story that was beautifully complex. It left me with many lessons and is sure to be a book that will be remembered for a very long time.
In spite of a beautiful,deep,pasionate story and truly amazing writting,I gave it 4 stars because I often felt confused and annoyed. It definitively was worth reading!
