Goodreads
  • Interesting to read.
  • I expected more from it. It's supposed to be a masterpiece, but it didn't feel like it.
  • I'm a bit sick of family sagas by now; it somehow happened that I read only them recently.
  • The villain, Cathy, is too simple. She's revealed to be pure evil right away. It's silly how she reveals all her secrets immediately when she drinks. But I guess it's the biblical devil or something.
  • It's the story of Cain and Abel, repeated. I get it.
