This was a good story, ideal for someone who loves books and words and who can handle a story about grief. It had some spectacular moments, but it fell shy of perfection for me. While I enjoyed the majority of the story, I would not be likely to pick it up and read it again, which is why I’ve gone with 4 stars on this one.
There are some things in this story that went unexplored that I wish had been explored. I think that’s what is lacking for me, even though it was interesting overall. The end is probably what brought it down for me, and I don’t mean any specific thing that happened at the end of the book. I just mean that it lost ground for me in the last 20% or so of the story, despite having held my full attention up until that point.
