It's not often a book can really make me cry but this one succeeded. Considering I mistakenly chose this thinking it was a different book I wasn't ready for the emotions it evoked in me and not all of them were sad. Some of the most beautiful moments I have ever read are contained in this book.Death tells a story that is both poignant and sometimes enlightening. When I realized who the narrator was I also remembered why I had put this book on my list. While it's not anything novel it certainly worked well for this tale and was done with grace. The little books within a book are priceless little gems as well.I am so very sorry I have not read this sooner as it is now one of my favourites.
