The Arsonists' City is everything you want out of a family saga. The setting is one I have not read from before and it taught me a lot of a culture and countries that I do not know enough about. You know you have read a beautiful book when you find yourself wanting to learn outside of that book.

The beginning (the before) put me in a state of shock, but kept me turning the pages because I needed to know where the story was going.

I think that the synopsis did a beautiful job of giving the potential reader intrigue yet keeping it vague so that with each page you would fall more in love with this family.

I found myself wanting to stay up to finish it. And when my eyes couldn't stay open any longer, I forced myself to at least end the current chapter.

We are given so much of the author's heart in this book and I would find it wonderful if it became adapted. This would definitely be a story that is Oscar worthy on screen.
