11: Recommendation | I found the novel quite interesting it had my full attention from beginning to end. I really don't have anything bad to say but that just because I like to see the good in most things. I would love to read another one of his books. I honestly can't say I've ever watched or experienced anything close to anything in the story. I can connect with the fact that they think about each other before themselves. I always put friends and family first.
