They both fear to be alone Comment In our opinion the book is really interesting and motivating to read. The end was really surprising and the emotions of the characters gets really close. The special writing style of the novel really formed a fixed film inside our heads. The pictures and other strange parts like unreadable text passages woke our interest to read further and to understand the meaning of them. We recommend everybody to read this extremely interesting and incredibly fascinating novel.
