anabanana0329: This book is great if u are interested in Greek mythology.This book is a good book to read.The chapters are very short.But they talk about side gods that aren't the main ones.Its really cool.And I love it very much.

Fabia Scali-Warner: Wow. This works reminds me of Allen Ginsberg, and at times even Prevert. The arching storyline is interesting, but I loved the care given to every verse. What a gem!

Gianna Patsy: Pretty good! I am on chapter eighteen now. I’m hoping that she finds someone else she just needs to learn how to let go although I think I know how this ends......please do not comment any spoilers

Rosanna Wiltshire: Great plot, Charlotte is getting slightly annoying at this point, but hopefully she matures further in. Check for spelling and grammatical errors within the story. I found myself re reading a few times because of the spelling of some words or "you're" being used instead of "your".

Cece_0502: I always attach emotionally to every book I have read so I don't particularly read sad stories. But thought to give this a chance and I surely don't regret it. It's so beautifully crafted, I was crying for half an hour after finishing this story.

Claire Kimanuka Rukundo: Special book and I like it very much

David: Just gave you 4 stars for the Grammar since you only have C2, weak.Other than that, loved the "Wanna be a psychopath" approach and writing.Keep up the good work and keep stealing Infreno's ideas :)
