What caused you to read the novel? What did you like about it?

I find the novel amazing. It’s beautifully written and I read it pretty fast although it’s 700 pages long. I actually saw the Dutch translation a couple of months ago and it made me curious.

Describe the novel in a tweet


The novel is about four friends who all have their own problems while growing-up. One of them remains a mystery for a long time.

What makes this novel interesting?

What makes it interesting for me is that it’s about four friends and they have a voice in the novel. But one of them, Jude, speaks the most and that way you will discover more and more about his mysterious past.

In what categories would you place this novel?
