    The length of this book was a blessing I enjoyed it, but really only because it mystified me as I read With cryptic language and almost ethereal imagery, I could picture things, but it was almost as if the author did not want to present the situation as wholly real The formatting was also unique, being divided by parts and scene breaks alone I actually grew to like this and it assisted me in reading the book so quickly Looking at another of Hoffman s books, I believe it is a style she util The length of this book was a blessing I enjoyed it, but really only because it mystified me as I read With cryptic language and almost ethereal imagery, I could picture things, but it was almost as if the author did not want to present the situation as wholly real The formatting was also unique, being divided by parts and scene breaks alone I actually grew to like this and it assisted me in reading the book so quickly Looking at another of Hoffman s books, I believe it is a style she utilizes again The setting of the Spanish town and the determination of everyone to be devoutly Catholic, so as not to be thought Jewish, was riveting and tense I believe this was the ...
