This is my favorite book in the whole world. Never has a book made me feel so many emotions. I felt fear, and happiness, and sadness, and suspense, and confusion, all in one novel. It was absolutely amazing. I highly recommend this book to people who like adventure, some historical fiction, and some mystery. It's wonderful.
