Reviews about historical, literary, classic, and other fiction. Miscellaneous book things.
I liked the initial part of the book, but around the part with the mother's letter, it started feeling less compelling to me. Perhaps part of it was that it shifted from showing me the story to just telling it to me.
As I got closer to the end, it just felt like things were too neatly tied up, like some sort of bland fairy tale ending. Rather mushy, and not satisfying at all.
