    Thanks, Hayley! I'm really enjoying it. It took me a long while to get a handle on the plot (there are a lot of characters who are all intertwined in the same story) but, once I did, I really started enjoying it. I happily spent about 4 hours reading it yesterday. I think "Jane Eyre", "Tess of the d'Ubervilles" and "The Great Gatsby" are all up there. I could re-read those three forever.

    Hi everyone! I’m new to the forum and a huge bookworm. I’m a big fan of non-fiction and the classics, but I’m currently reading “The Luminaries” at the moment. I’m looking forward to getting stuck in to some book-related discussions on here! handshedown
