I do love Candor.
The brainwashing and the idea of subliminal messages fascinated me. The first part may be a bit slow, but when Nia appeared the book changed: would Oscar tell her the truth?
And what can I say about the end... When I realized that I was near the end, I thought that the autor would weaken; I have read a lot of good books, with a good plot and characters, but with a not-as-goo-end, so I thought that it was to happen something alike. But I was wrong! I supposed what was going to happen - to be sincere, the book couldn't have another end - but I was delighted with it. A perfect but heartbreaking end. Chapo
