This isn't exactly a review. I just wanted to mention a couple things that really pleased me about this book.
- Roark finding out a bit more about his past, and his reaction to it, and then Eve and Summerset's reaction to his reaction. The always cool, unflappable Roark was shaken to his very core and to see him so off balance was really something.
- Eve and Summerset. At best, their relationship can be described as prickly. But I've always felt that underneath it all that while they may not exactly like each other, there is a mutual respect there, and yes buried way down deep - caring. They'll never be best buddies, but still.
I used this book to fill the following square:
Book themes for International Human Rights Day: Read a book originally written in another language (i.e., not in English and not in your mother tongue), –OR– a book written by anyone not anglo-saxon, –OR– any story revolving around the rights of others either being defended or abused.
–OR– Read a book set in New York City, or The Netherlands (home of the U.N. and U.N. World Court respectively).
And I think I actually managed to fill a square on the actual day of the event.
