This was one of the best books I have ever read. I had a really hard time putting it down- the plot just continued to unfold and there were so many unique parts to this book. I would highly recommend people read this

J'ai adoré ce livre, tant du point de vue de l'histoire que du point de vue de la narration. Un style alerte et dynamique, des dialogues qui captent notre attention et une histoire d'amour avec un grand A pleine de tendresse et de tristesse. Un dénouement qui, à certains moments, nous glace le sang et qui en dit long sur les horreurs que l'homme peut commettre.

À lire absolument!
