Here it is! I'm sorry to hear the first book got lost. This one got here safe and sound, and with some delicious-smelling tea to make it company :) Thanks for the lovely bookmark and postcard as well.

It took me awhile to get to this book, but I was finally able to pick it up :)

At the beginning it wasn't such an easy read and it took me some effort to get into the story. The whole scenario of Cristiano's life is very dark and sad, and it isn't always easy to relate to the kind of struggle he goes through. However, as I progressed in the book I became more used to the story and I started to really enjoy it. Every character has a sad story, so this ends up being a heavy book, but ultimately very well crafted. It was curious to see how the perfect crime that had been planned played out, and it was after entering that part of the plot that I really got gripped by the plot. I ended up quite liking the book and it was very interesting read indeed. Different and somewhat refreshing. I'm glad it was sent my way :)

Since the game by which I received the book isn't open no more, I will pass this book along to raluk68, who hosted the game at the time, and who showed interest in reading this. Thanks for sharing!

Since the book is traveling along, I thought I might as well turn it into a BRay and see if someone else is interested in it :)
