    Yes. I liked the story enough that I bought this one the other day. What I didn't care as much for with All The Missing Girls was how the story was presented (backwards). Sometimes writers try to get too cute, IMO, when they should just tell the story.

    But like I said, the story was good in that one, so I am giving this one a try.

    Eh. Not bad, but too wordy. Also, the author skips between visions and reality and it takes about half of the book for that to make sense. If this were 2/3 the size and a little more historical (and a little less presumptive), I'd give it higher marks.
