This book has been on my TBR list for a while so I was very happy when my book club picked it to read. I had heard great things which sometimes worries me. Would the book be as good as most people say it is? Will these reviews cloud my own judgement of the book? What if I’m the only person to not like it?

I would highly recommend this book to anyone.
