This was such a good book, excellent writing and the author keeps unraveling the story all the way until the very end. I definitely cried and sympathized with Abel’s situation. Although I don’t approve of some of his choices, especially when he hurt Anna. The twist at the end left me in shock and yes I cried. This is one of those stories that will stay with you long after you put the book down.

This was a wonderfully-written book that made me contemplate my own sort-of-"soap bubble" life.

I remember reading this book about 2 years ago. It was such a great book that I went out and bought it. I will definitely read it over and over again. Michaelis is an amazing writer, and this story will not disappoint. It has some adult content, but it wasn't too bad.

Wow, this book is simply amazing. Right from the beginning, makes you get into the story and makes you to continue to reading it until the end. I was truly satisfied while reading this books, definitely one of my favorite books. I've read it more than three times and every time I read it, I gather new information and new imagination. Simply amazing, and wow! Definitely recommending this books for anyone who wants to read a story within a story! Amazing! Will definitely leave you in shock at the end, and will make you repeat ‘why, why!!!”

I will not spoil the ending for those who haven't read the book but I will say that it's a very creative book with many twists and turns. You will not be disappointed.

This book was perfect, that huge twist? Totally did not see that coming XD!! I couldn't put this book down, even after I finished it I had to re-read it at least another three times it was that good. I recommend this book to any and everyone who likes a little romance, mystery, suspence and a story telling within the actual story all wrapped in one? Then this is definitely the story for you, it definitely satisfied my need of a good story at the time and it pulled through perfectly starting with the very first sentence. Well, I have to go, maybe I can get in another chapter!! XD
