I had to study this novel for the then CXC examination. This book was very well written, especially the literary devices used to illustrate the story. The themes were very interesting and well put together. Mr. Lovelace is one of my favourite authors. With each line, paragraph, page I read I could have created the images of the story, in my mind. I love this book. Thumbs up.
