I love this book. I've been glued to it and nearly forgot to do my homework. Honestly! I love the narrator as well, as she is so soothing. There is no problem at all with the length of the book, because it gives you this feeling that you want to read on to know the main plot. The vocabulary is also fine. Perfect for 8-17 aged people. My personal favourite character was Beatrix (spoilers ahead!), I liked her catty behaviour. To me, turns out the good people were catty and obnoxious, while the evil were more kind. Okay I'm going to go now. Bye!
