The first hundred and fifty pages of this book took me four or five days to get through. The writing was lovely but so sleep inducing. Then bam plot twist. So many plot twists. I ended up really enjoying myself. As a general rule I'm not a fan of retellings as story from a student perspective, but it worked here was a necessary evil. Still the last half of the book was probably my favorite part and made this near six hundred page book worth it.
