Well this was a pleasant surpriseFirst let me speak of the story construction It is imaginative in how it introduces and sets each of the main characters We enter their lives and heads and I must say that the author is astonishing gifted in creating well rounded three dimensional characters who truly differ from each other and who are flawed and strong in finely detailed real feeling ways Both main characters drive me crazy in the consistently stupid and hurtful ways they treated each other but this was done in such a fine way that it led to an excellent appreciation of them as real peopleThe better part of the story arc that develops this wonderful string true relationship of people who can barely abide to be with each other in the beginning and not with a treacle y change of heart The author shows slow true love and affection in the most literal sense growing in different ways with the two of themThe surprise is not that this is a good book but just how good it is It is simply a wonderful story of people
