This is the story of the life and death of Vina Apsara, a huge singing sensation, and everyone around her. It takes place over the course of a whole lifetime and finishes after her death.

Vina and Ormus and well, there are so many. They are all described a lot and you get a vivid picture of them all in your mind, but I don’t think you’re supposed to completely understand them.

It took me three months to read this book, it is so descriptive with a lot of big sentences that I had to read several times to get them to make any sense. And it’s a really hard book to get into, it’s like reading the story on the surface but not really connecting with the book at all. By the end, I was sick of it.
