This book is fantastic. Boyle's use of words and shaping of language are really the soul of this book. Each word matters, each word counts. Not a word is wasted and not a word is added. Boyle can paint the world with vivid, detailed strokes, using words that not only fit perfectly but work in an unexpected way. He uses words that one might not think to use in that scenario, but magically describe things in just the right way. The character development is significant, but I think there is still room for both characters to grow. On the other hand, this seems to be an honest representation of the real world. It seems that there are always misunderstandings, that there is always more than one point of view.
I highly recommend this book and this book gets a full five out of five stars.
