'The writing is absolutely compelling. Normally it takes me quite a while before I really get emotionally attached to a book, but this book pulled me in from the first page. The characters are beautifully written and flawed and the plot twists are endless. I finished this book last night and I'm still reeling in my emotions. This has become one of my favourite books of all time.'
