An excellent book, incredibly eloquent and evokes much imagery and emotion from the reader. The plot itself is not the most creative or riveting, but the quality of the writing makes up for it tenfold. The astounding articulacy leaves a lasting impression, conveying so much of what other novels fail to. Beautiful, beautiful book. I highly recommend purchasing it, but at the very least, read it.
