This is the best book I have ever read! I felt like I couldn't put it down and just had to find out what happened next. There aren't many books that I can say have done that but this book kept me interested and guessing from beginning to end. It is now my favorite book and I would recommend it to anyone that wants a good story, with added twist that you will never see coming.

I honestly don't know whether to hate or love this book. It's vividly, gruesomely written. It is the ONLY book in my memory that has left me nauseous and not wanting dinner. It is also one of the few books I've read with such amazing make-you-sit-up-straight-and-read-for-hours qualities, like it's amazing descriptions and the way you sort of see into everyone's mind. It was unique, it was original... but it was also terrifying.

It was magnificent.
It was terrible.
It is a book I strongly encourage you to read.
