I was so glad to have a chance to read this book. I got my e-book copy in NetGalley but unfortunately I wasn't able to download the copy right away then someone special gave me the hardbound copy of this book. I think me and this book is meant to be! LOL. First time that I saw this book months back I think early 2015 in a bookstore. I fell in love with the cover of the book, and the title is just as interesting. I immediately checked the blurb at the back of the paperback copy, just then and there I want to buy the copy but then I was really out of budget until days or months pass by I got busy with work and all... but here ya go! I got really lucky because my special someone surprised me and he bought the book. (THANK YOU!)
As I read the book, to be honest I got confused in some parts because of the chronological order of the events. But in every chapter there was a different reaction, there was this moment when I'm nervous, afraid, happy and so many others but the book or the story itself gives goosebumps to me. It was written so well and carefully detailed, so poetic and interesting, historical and amazing. This is the kind of book where I won't get tired of reading. People kept asking me if this book is good and worth it, now that I fully finished the book my answer is YES IT IS worth your time and money. Just a head up though, the story itself is a puzzle. The book is deep and you have focus on it.
I enjoyed reading the book at the same time my heart breaks for every single person mentioned in the story. I was so afraid for Marie Laure, she's been through a lot of challenges. I imagined myself being in her place I think I will just give up right away but this girl, despite of her condition she fought for what's right and for her life. Things turned upside down to her but she never loses hope.
What more can I say? I'm not sure the book actually left me with a shattered heart. It also give me that feeling of not reading again after a couple of days or weeks but I have to fight for that feeling so I tried reading other books unfortunately I read a little slower. LOL
I hope other readers will find the book awesome the way I look at it because in my opinion. This is really worth it.
