the book: a very enjoyable book. it was well paced with just enough twists and surprising connections to keep you wanting the next page. it has the right amount of glitz and gore to please a fairly wide verity of people without being overly graphic. Dolamore's writing style was easy to read and follow, with an attention to detail that wasn't overly stuffy and only very occasionally left me wanting just a bit more. just a well rounded book. definitely worth a read!
the characters: i did like the characters, they were all distinct. but, they weren't the strongest i have ever read. there wasn't a lot of building on their morals or anything like that throughout the story. nevertheless, these are solid characters.
the point: i like a book that really drives a point and leaves me thinking. this did have some interesting views but nothing that just lays you flat. so, if you are looking for a book edging on spooky, with good characters, great settings and an interesting story. put this one down with a star!
