    " this book is short, strong, and sad. "

    " The synopsis of the novel sounds interesting; i expected this book to be haunting and captivating. Wrong on both accounts. The novel is broken into three main parts which switch point of views. It tells the story of an obsessive sociopath, Frederick Clegg, with a fixation on a young, beautiful art student named Miranda. When reading the first section you delve into Clegg's odd mind which proves to be somewhat fascinating. However, I found the second section to be nearly unbearable. The second part of the novel goes back and tells the same entire story as the first, but this time through the girl's perspective. Miranda is horribly irritating. She is self-righteous, naive and entertains many thoughts that she views as "enlightened" but really are thoroughly underwhelming and obnoxious. The ending of the book is truly anti-climatic. I will say that I thought the best part of the book was the last couple of pages, which incidentally did creep me out a bit. I don't think I would recommend this book to anyone; mostly because I loathe Miranda. "

    " this is not the right edition, the cover of mine is absolutely beautiful. it has a lock of hair, a key & a butterfly of course. I love it. the pages are yellow & smell of cigarette smoke & dust. "
