Awesome

This book is often overlooked, however it is a story about love and kidnapping and ultimately murder. I was initially hesitant about it because the beginning is slow but I found the characters
real and I was immediately drawn in by the drama about the house. Also, there is a lot of symbolism in the novel and the ending was great! I originally choose this book because I was reading down the list Oprah gave and was pleasantly surprised
by the content. This is a must read whoever is viewing this author, buy this book, you won't be disappointed. This is one of my favorite novels.
