I first heard about this book either through the Bookrageous or through Books on the Nightstand, but I pretty sure I heard about the book through both at some point, and then heard about the book through the New York Times Book Review Podcast, which convinced me that I really did need to read the book and that it did appeal to me.
And I wasn't disappointed with it at all. While I felt that it took a bit of the story to actually get going, once the story did get going, I really got into the story. What I really liked was the shift between the characters and how very different their narratives ended up being from each other and reflected their personalities well. I also liked how they interacted with each other and was really surprised how involved I got with the various characters, especially with Jules. In fact, I got so involved with the story that I found myself bawling as I finishing up the book.
I don't know why the book struck a chord with me in that manner, but while I didn't like it so much as to garner a higher rating, it was a book that probably will stay with me for a long time.
