Despite the fact that there is no conversation in the whole book between hero and heroine, the inner dialogue of the hero is so compelling. This book is far from perfect technically and if a more technical reader challenged me on some of the inconsistencies, I would so give it to them. But EMOTIONALLY this book is damn near perfect and since I have strong emotional reactions when reading, this book has gotten to me in a big way. It has a very emotional ending and the first time I read it, I choked up and even went so far as to CRY. I’m not a crier and holding back those tears even made my throat hurt more.
It’s still calling to me though. I have started a couple of other books since then and I can tell they are good and normally I would really enjoy them, but once more, I don’t know how far I’ll get before the compulsion comes over me again.
