Review by: ZaldyF on Oct. 26, 2014 :
A plot of twists and turns.

Maybe my title is inadequate for this review, Honestly I am dumbfounded and can't think of a better title. This book has entertained me well enough to have the privilege of reading through it a second time.

As one of those living in a country where the nights are ruled by soap operas, "tele-seryes", drama shows and TV novels, I very, really, truly appreciate reading something as good as this. It refreshed my mind that every once in a while a good story does go on through the tube.

A nice start, a good mid story and a great ending. Unusually unique and I never thought of the epilogue would be the biggest twist of all. Very, very nice characters and the development of the main ones far exceeds those of other stories. They were built from the ground up to let readers know what really goes on inside their heads and hearts. The story which focused on just one of them (it seems) was a bigger and a much nicer story for all of them. Never had I enjoyed reading something from this genre before in my life of being a book worm. Classically modern, semi-educational, all entertaining and never a bother reading books like this. Truly a wonder. Kudos to the author for writing something as great as this.
