I’ve nothing against people who love truth. Apart from the fact that they make dull companions.
Fate, at first so amenable, so reasonable, so open to negotiation, ends up by exacting a cruel revenge for happiness.
I don’t want to say too much about this book because I don’t want to give anything away, but it is definitely worth reading.
I am a not-so-secret Gothic nerd, and this is a modern Gothic tale, full of plot twists and mystery. Jane Eyre is mentioned enough times to be tiresome ~ I get annoyed when authors reference beloved books excessively, it feels like they are trying to profit from another’s genius ~ but the plot and narration suck you in quickly. This is the perfect book for long plane/train rides, which is exactly where I read it.
