  I only read this at night before going to bed, and I stopped whenever I got tired. That's why it took me so long to finish it. As for the actual book itself, its a masterpiece. The mysteries are thought through well and it has some twists that you'd never expect while these mysteries are being played out. The relationship between the two main characters also has an interesting dynamic. They both go through a massive character development boot camp throughout the course of the book, and it's nice to see characters bloom to their full potential like that. I thought it was a little juvenile though, that both characters had an identical thought process that that was how they solved some of the mysteries, and also the quickly pasted on cover-ups that served as an excuse as to why some things happened. Some of it was like the author just pulled it out of thin air because she needed an explanation for something. Regardless, the piece as a whole is still brilliant, even with some added setbacks.
