The writing style was very rich, which added a lot to the setting and characters. I felt like the book was a little long - some of the character viewpoints could have been cut, but it was still nice to get a complete picture. Of course, you love the two main characters. Individually, they are each generous and kind-hearted. You hear their stories and see how they interact with others and know that they'd be suited to each other. So while it's nice to see them fall in love, it's also a little strange because they spend hardly any time together. The scenes in which they are together are very few.
