    uite a ThrillerVery well characterized all the characters seems real than one can fathom You would feel goosebumps while reading few of the scenes And might even feel heart broken after reaching the very end More than any character in the book Gladys is one to look up to here She is a fighter; the way she faces the constant challenges thrown before her is impressive Though this book has been based on Goethe's Faust but yet this has been given a different perspective from the real one
