Every now and then a book enters your brain and won't let go. It haunts you long after you finish it, the feeling and the tone popping into your head while you're thinking of something else. You put yourself into the narrator's character so well that you feel the experiences you've read about almost as if it were you who lived them.

For me, this was such a book. There's no reason why this book resonated so well with me - I've never read any of her other work, and I have never heard of this author besides knowing she wrote the book upon which "Wide Sargasso Sea" was based, which I've also never seen. Regardless, I was transported into another time and place, enjoying the strong will of the character in a situation that seemed horrible, impossible, beautiful, dreamlike, and historical. Some books are movies, they are so visual and so memorable. This is one such book. And so quick and short and chopped up, making it extra easy to pick up between doing other things.
