This fictional book is admittedly well-written however after learning about the actual woman & her story which was completely transformed by the author... I have little love left for it. I loved the prose, the story, everything about it until I learned that the author did not do justice to the actual person. She has since written a book about her real experiences, and I look forward to reading that instead.

Lovely book I adored before I learned to how awful unethically it was created, not to mention inaccurate.

I gripping book, but as story develops, it seems to get a bit tedious. I just can't get myself to finish the book even though I got 50 odd pages left. It gets a bit tiresome to read near the end. Overall, it was an intriguing book, giving an insight one of the most closed group of individuals in the world.
