Miss Enchanting's Book Club Rating: 5/5
Wow. There wasn't actually anyone in our book club who didn't enjoy this book, with the majority ranking it as the best book we had read over the two years our club has been running. It's a story of lies, love, loss and loathing.
Initially the book was a little bombarded with different characters, so it was hard keeping track of who was who and just as you started to get a grip on one set of people, the chapter would cut you short and send you over to another character. But eventually the links were pieced together in this brilliantly written and thought provoking novel.
