It was magnificent. I am relieved as I was sad to think that it would be awhile before I got to read something as fantastic as the Twilight Saga.
This book is entirely different from those books, except for the fact that all are supposedly for young adults. This one took awhile to read, but not because it was ever a chore to slog through. The writing here is just something to really enjoy. The only way I can think to describe it is to say that it feels handcrafted.
Certainly the story is amazing and moving and even original what with Death doing the narrating, but it is definitely the author’s skill with words that pushes this one into top-notch territory.
