Reconmendation

At first when i saw the title to this book i was like no way, i'm not reading this boring book but as i read a few chapters i grew to like it. Its not only a scientific book its also a mystery and tragedy book at the same time. so while reading it your also learning about difficulties in other peoples live. Yes also this book can get to you in some parts because you might not agree with it and it also might anger you too. Im always the first one to say no to books but if i can read it and enjoy it while mixing my personally emotions with it i don't see why you wouldn't enjoy this novel. So yes i do recommend this novel its a great non stop book.
