★ Personal opinion:
I chose this book because my brother read it and he told me that it was not too hard… and not too easy. The story is a kind of tragedy, but things are not as awful as feared at the end of the book.
I recommend this book to those who like suspense, mystery … This is also one of the best books for those who are learning English.
