Would you want to know the minute of your death? This book is easily my choice for book of the year. Captivated from the moment I began reading, I didn't wish to put it down. This is a fantastic choice for book clubs and I see it garnering a great many accolades.
The plot is absolutely amazing as you follow this group of children, the Gold children, on their quest for the knowledge of their own time of death. The characters are beautifully written and well fleshed out. There are times that I ugly cried at things that were happening in the story, but there were equal times that I loved gobbling up the moments of love and magic. There were also scenes that hurt me and may you if you are an animal lovers, but it did not detract from the story.
I loved it, and would give more stars if possible.
