Overall, this was one of the best books I've read in a long time. At times, the story would slow down a bit but I didn't really realize it because Trofimuk uses language so well. His descriptions, his word choice, his sentence structure are all unique and enchanting. Numerous times I found myself thinking "I would never have thought to use that description" or "what an odd way to write that sentence." Plus, there was a very interesting point of view change in the book that I still haven't quite figured out the reason for but I can tell it was deliberate. On top of that, it's not often that a narrator reads a story to where I can feel the sentence structure and nuances of the language and Grover Gardner did that.
I definitely recommend this book to anybody who loves a good story.
