this is kind of d book

Strange but beautiful

The language and structure of the text of this book is almost lyrical, metaphorical, and all-around deeply moving. The content of the story itself is a little offbeat, with the whole cousin-getting-with-cousin thing, but do not let it disguise or ruin the intense beauty of Rosoff's unique style of writing for you. I really enjoyed what she does with punctuation in the novel; keep in mind that these unique punctuation decisions are not all for random aesthetics, but instead, everything from the lack of punctuation to that big black circle has a significant meaning in this book.


It was an okay book. Not a lot of punctuation. It was kind of hard to understand what was happening in the book. It was short, and kind of simple. Some of the charcters were really weird, too. Maybe 3 out of 5 stars.


I think this book was a weird and really creepy. Overall, it was pretty interesting.
