Has anyone read this?

I am dying to talk about it and determine if anyone thought about it as much after they finished as I did. . . .

Yes, I read it several months ago and found the whole construct fascinating!

I liked the construct, and I liked that it took me a bit of time to really figure out what was going on. . . a bit like our narrator. I read a fair amount, and I usually am able to jump ahead a bit with a good idea of where the book is going. This book took me some time to sort out.

I also liked that it made me think about my own reactions. I tried to decide how I would react to something like what Anna did prior to heading to the house.

My only frustration was with the inclusion of Silver Tear. It seemed rather late in the story to add that character and possibly like an added obstacle which wasn't really needed.
