A nice book.
Very interesting way of telling the story. First Frederic's that was quite interesting and compelling. Then from Miranda's point of viee, that was also interesting, but less captive to me because the story line was already laid out.
The book really has an open ending, but from the way Frederic was described, I think I know how the story will continue 😃

Creepy, is the one word I would use to describe this story!

I too enjoyed the first half more, as the story was laid out and found the second half, from the point of view of Miranda, a bit slower.

A good read.
