It is a bit confusing, but it has a unique writing style. The story of the book is also really unique and inspiring. Read full review

User Review  - Phire - Goodreads

This is the first time I've reread this book since I was 10, when I last read it in German. The ending is a bit more abrupt than I'd like, but I'm very pleased to find that it otherwise stands up to the test of time. Read full review
