    This is an amazing novel. Very ahead of its time (late 18th century). Whatever you do, DON'T read the back of this book or read the introduction. It's much more interesting if you don't know the twist. Try to guess if you can! I can't speak highly enough about this book. It's very twisted and intriguing and throws up such interesting questions - questions that are even more relevant today.
